Summary: With all the changes in information storage and retrieval, anyone doing research today may feel unsure of the most efficient ways to use the library. The Oxford Guide to Library Research provides an overview of little-known but powerful strategies used by librarians and information specialists, through clear explanations of nine fundamental methods of searching. Thomas Mann explains how these techniques can be applied profitably to almost any area of research, and considers all formats -- from newspapers to digital libraries on the Web -- for their unique advantages, as well as for their limitations. Drawing on over twenty years' experience helping library users, Mann enlivens his advice throughout with real-world examples. Against the trendy but mistaken assumption that "everything" can be found on the Internet, he asserts the lasting value of physical libraries and time-tested research strategies, while acknowledging the complementary applications of computer technology. Required reading for anyone navigating the complex universe of information resources, The Oxford Guide to Library Research offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the field, one that can save its readers countless hours in the search for information.
