Walford’s Guide to Reference Material has been an essential for reference collections for over thirty years. Now into its eighth edition, this prestigious reference work updates and expands upon the areas already covered in the seventh edition. Together the three volume set forms the most substantial work of its kind in the English language. As the Internet (and CD-ROMs) increasingly provide sources of reference information, so Walford’s coverage reflects this growth. Selective and evaluative entries guide the user to the best source of reference in each subject area, be it journal article, CD-ROM, online database, bibliography, encyclopedia, monograph or directory. It features full critical annotations and reviewers’ comments and comprehensive author—title and subject indexes.
