From the Publisher"With this book Holt provides one-stop shopping for information sources on all aspects of forensics. Seven chapters provide data on topics ranging from online resources to indexing/abstracting sources. Chapters are subdivided, providing easier access in locating information; the chapter titled Journals includes Key Publishers, Core Forensic Journals, and Evaluation of Journals. Entries are precise, including citation and descriptive paragraphs on the source. A nice addition is the Research Essentials chapter providing bibliographical management tools, and copyright and citation information. The introduction presents an overview of forensic subspecialties (ballistics, psychiatry, and economics) and the Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine, and Dewey subject classification systems. Subject headings are included for each classification system for ease in searching. Alphabetical indexes (name/title/electronic resource; subject) provide quick locations for entries….[a]n excellent source for researchers, students, and CSI enthusiasts. Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers."
"Guide to Information Sources in the Forensic Sciences is timely, comprehensive, and valuable. As the title accurately portrays, this bibliographic work provides an essential starting point for anyone conducting research in the forensic sciences or in the multitude of other related subspecialities within the discipline….Guide to Information Sources in the Forensic Sciences would be a welcome addition to any academic library that supports either a criminal-justice or forensic-sciences program, as well as to any other highly specialized setting focused on the forensic sciences, such as a police department, a crime laboratory, or a law firm. This book is an equally valuable resource for students, librarians, researchers, and forensic-science practitioners."
