About the Editors

As the publisher of the essential Guide to Reference Books, first printed more than a century ago, as well as Reference Sources for Small and Medium-Sized Libraries and Fundamental Reference Sources, the American Library Association has long been a source for authoritative bibliographies of the reference literature for practicing librarians, library educators, and reference service trainers. The ALA Guide to Reference series continues that tradition with expertly compiled, discipline-specific, annotated bibliographies of reference works. Under the direction of general editors Robert Kieft (2000–2009) and Denise Bennett (2009–), many librarians have contributed their time and their knowledge of reference literature to this series.
Reviews

"The paragraph-length entries are quite detailed ... Few recent, comprehensive bibliographies cover both sociology and psychology, so this new guide will be a useful resource. Recommended."
--CHOICE Reviews

"Provides a strong foundation to sociology reference resources and a brief survey of psychology reference resources. Social science reference and collection librarians will find this resource helpful to develop reference and general collections."
--Against the Grain
