Description: Let a general Reference Librarian at the Library of Congress show you the best ways to find the information you need.

With all the changes in information storage and retrieval, anyone doing research today may feel unsure of the most efficient ways to use the library. Through clear explanations of nine fundamental methods of searching, Thomas Mann provides an overview of little known but powerful strategies used by librarians and information specialists. These techniques can be applied profitably to almost any area of research, from discovering business records or government documents to unearthing manuscripts in archives or finding genealogical Web sites on line. Chapters explain how to take advantage of controlled vocabularies, browse library shelves systematically, construct keyword searches, use published bibliographies, and even make personal contacts with knowledgeable people. Against the trendy but mistaken assumption that "everything" can be found on the Internet, Mann asserts the lasting value of physical libraries and time tested research strategies, while acknowledging the complementary applications of computer technology. Throughout, Mann enlivens his advice with real world examples. All formats -- including books, journals, newspapers, microforms, audiovisual materials, primary documents, bibliographic databases, and tal libraries on the World Wide Web -- are considered for their advantages, as well as for their limitations.
