**** About itself the 8th edition notes: "Primarily intended as an instructional guide for library personnel and researchers who work with reference materials, the Guide surveys the basic and most familiar or typical resources for general reference work, and for work with the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, and pure and applied sciences." The 7th edition, titled Guide to basic reference materials . . . , is recommended by ARBA, v.16, but is missed by BCL3 and Sheehy. A solid work marred by the flimsy paper binding--a shockingly bad production decision: a bibliography gets repeated use. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Three aspects of information work in libraries, archives, museums and community information services are covered: the way in which information is controlled so that it can be retrieved; the bibliographies which provide this control; and the sources in which the information can be located. Bibliographies (ranging from catalogues to national bibliographies) and content sources (ranging from encyclopaedias to patents) are studied in all their forms: printed, microform and online databases, including CD-ROM. The book is specifically attuned to southern Africa. Although it is designed for students of information science and applied information science (librarianship), it also provides an effective guide to major South African and international reference and information sources.
