Reference Book Review Section
This quarter, students
in Matt Saxton's section of LIS 520 (also known as Information Services,
Resources and Collections) wrote reviews of new reference books. The
assignment asked students to evaluate the books based on criteria such
as authority, scope, organization, format, range and treatment. The
following reviews were selected for your edification and enjoyment -
so sit back, relax and enjoy!
