Moss has prepared a new edition of Diane W. Strauss's Handbook of Business Information, which was hailed as an impressive 'how-to' book that had a place in every library. Since its publication, much has changed in the availability and format of business information. This edition's basic organization is like Strauss's: the first part lists materials by format (bibliographies, directories, periodicals, and the like), the second by topic. Moss builds on the strengths of the earlier work, eliminating dated concepts like the vertical file and integrating references to electronic and Internet resources now so critical to business reference…. This work promises to become a textbook for library students, a guide for working librarians who deal with business inquiries, and a key addition to any library collection. Rival guides are at least ten years old, and the revolution in the access and formatting of business information makes this update clearly needed. Highly recommended. Graduate students; faculty.
"This long-awaited update of Diana W. Strauss's 1988 original edition first covers 'formats': directories, periodicals, loose-leaf services, government information services, and electronic sources. References are then organized by 'fields': banking, marketing, accounting, stocks and bonds, etc. Graphics include screen shots of e-sources.
