Editorial Reviews


• Introduces the principles of effective searching

• Contains information drawn from on-the-job experience

• Provides advice on the reference interview and teaching others about databases

• Includes "beyond the textbook" exercises to expose students to even more resources

• Content is based on commonly available databases

• Sample exercises and questions to test searching skills are based on real-world problems

• A range of different vendor interfaces are covered

• A companion website offers multimedia demonstrations, updates, and a blog

"Excellent presentation of a hard to encompass subject and good ways to approach it. Highly recommended."


Teacher Librarian

"There are teaching tips that will help both the new teacher/librarian and the veteran. This is one of those books that will soon spout all sorts of little sticky notes and highlighted lines. It is possible that the book may need to be replaced before the fourth edition comes out because the librarian has worn out the first copy!"


Library Media Connection

"[S]hould be near every library reference desk as it is a quick and thorough resource for any desk worker. The information on Google Scholar and other free websites alone make the book well worth the purchase price, but the addition of the companion website should allow the material to remain current longer than a print book."


Endnotes: The Journal of the New Members Round Table

"The book is well-organized. The 'quick recap' of key subjects is a helpful feature for readers who need to become knowledgeable as quickly as possible. . . . All in all, this book is a solid introduction to traditional reference librarianship but needs updating for the social media age."


Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries

Book Description

Although database vendors constantly strive to improve the user experience, navigating the volatile and expansive landscape of the Internet isn't as simple as it would seem; it still takes skill, persistence, and knowledge of specific methodologies to produce reliable results. Every librarian needs to have effective search skills in order to provide accurate, relevant, and competent service to patrons.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Using it for a course, and it's very good at explaining database construction and indexing. It's easy to read and doesn't have a lot of junk around the edges to distract you. I'll be keeping this text in the book case instead of selling it back at the end of the course.

Rented for school. Easy order and fast shipping. Book has a lot of high living from previous use, but otherwise it is exactly what was ordered.
