Overview

For nearly twenty-five years A Research Guide for Undergraduate Students has helped students avoid the pitfalls of conducting library research for term papers and theses. Updated and revised, the sixth edition shows undergraduates how to use their research time efficiently and how to locate and evaluate material available from electronic databases and the Internet.

The new edition of the popular Research Guide has been updated and significantly expanded to help beginning researchers navigate the library of the computer era. "Designed to give the harried undergraduate a road map of the reference library in literary research, (the guide) is fast becoming a 'standard.'"--American Reference Books Annual.
