  • Description

Walford has been an essential guide for reference collections for over thirty years. Together, the three volume set forms the most substantial work of its kind in the English language. This comprehensive guide classifies over twenty-types of print and electronic reference resources--General Introductions; Dictionaries, Thesauri, and Classifications; Associations and Societies; Libraries, Archives, and Museums; Digital data, image, and text collections; directories and Encyclopedias; tools for keeping up-to-date; and much more--carefully selected and evaluated by subject specialists to provide a definitive list of the most appropriate and useful information for any searcher’s needs. The New Walford now includes evaluations and listings of an extensive range ofe-reference sources such as digital databanks, digital reference services, electronic journal collections, meta-search engines, networked information services, open archives, resource discovery services, and Web sites of prominent organizations in both the public and private sectors. The New Walford is the ultimate volume for patrons, library and information professionals developing and revising reference collections, reference staff, research workers and students of library and information studies, or anyone new to reference work. It belongs on every reference desk.
