Choice Review

Zembicki's book is a guide to information sources that relate to the management of production facilities. In keeping with the business and management theme of this series, Zembicki approaches her subject from a business perspective and tends to neglect some of the sources used frequently by industrial engineers. Her book is organized logically, covers all aspects of the topic, and is well indexed. The list is fairly comprehensive and provides a good basic tool for checking collections in the area, but the materials included are somewhat dated (most were published 1983 and earlier), and there are some curious omissions, (e.g., no listing for the database ABI/INFORM or the journal Management Contents, 1975- ). In addition, the list could be improved if more technical journals like the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Management and Cybernetics (1971- ) were included. But even with its flaws, this book provides a resource that is unique in its coverage and, as such, it is recommended for use in all undergraduate libraries supporting production management, production engineering, or industrial technology programs. -D.
