Format: Paperback
Now in a newly updated and expanded sixth edition, the 104 page reference, "A Research Guide For Undergraduate Students: English And American Literature", by co-authors and librarians Nancy L. Baker and Nancy Huling offers a succinct and informative descriptional tour of the typical college library along with easy-to-understand summaries of the print and electronic research tools available to students and faculty. The research aids and reference works range from the 'Literary Resource Center', to the 'Expanded Academic ASAP', to 'Literature Online', to 'Library of Congress Subject Headings', to the 'MLA International Bibliography', to the 'Oxford English Dictionary', to the 'ProQuest Research Library', and dozens of others. "A Research Guide For Undergraduate Students" also provides a wealth of examples taken from the showcased reference materials, explains how to navigate a college library's electronic catalog, how to search for articles and books, the use of primary sources, locating biographic information, quotations, and miscellaneous facts. Of special note is a new chapter focused on dealing with bibliographic citation managers such as 'EndNote'. "A Research Guide For Undergraduate Students" is an invaluable guide, especially for new students and returning students wanting to take maximum advantage of what their college library has to offer them in support of their academic endeavors.
