Overview

The fourth edition contains an updated core list of the best current business resources, as well as a collection of new essays on important topics in business librarianship. Entries in the core list provide full bibliographic information, online ordering information, brief descriptions of authority and scope, and brief evaluations of the works' strengths and weaknesses.

The essays cover such topics as:

• Marketing the business library

• Organizing business libraries and information centers

• Acquiring business books

• Developing a business reference collection

• Accessing government documents

• Evaluating online and investment resources

• Assessing the state of business libraries in 2001

This volume will serve as a checklist of essential business reference tools that smaller libraries can use to evaluate their collections, and provides a guide to the best practices for smaller libraries seeking to begin or expand a business reference collection. The collection of essay also makes the book useful for library science courses in business reference.
