Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
``Information consciousness,'' according to Garvin, is realizing what information you need to make effective business decisions and knowing where to find it. President of a consulting firm, Garvin provides cogent reasons for gathering current, accurate information, including examples of real-life situations in which such information made the difference between success and failure. Garvin describes the sources of information available, such as online databases, CD-ROMs, books, and specialists. He also assesses the quality as well as the approximate cost of each type of service. Appendixes offer additional lists of resources. This how-to book is well organized and complete and would be of interest to anyone in business whose information needs dictate having an in-house service.-- Nancy Myers, Univ. of South Dakota Lib., Vermillion
