Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

The Internet and World Wide Web have made access to information easy but do not solve the problems of finding exactly what is wanted, to the point of overwhelming the reader with information. Since the first edition of this classic librarianship text appeared, the development of computer technology has meant that the organization of information has become a hugely complex area. This fifth edition places emphasis on the intellectual effort required to make meaningful use of the enormous amount of information now accessible to the searcher. Fully revised and updated in comprehensive detail that includes bibliographies, ample examples and quotations, it focuses on: information retrieval systems database access systems online searching and OPACs hypertext networked systems. Foskett describes how we search for information by looking at the problems involved, at the theoretical principles suggested as solutions and their practical realization as classification schemes, lists of subject headings and thesauri. Readership: This influential text is widely acknowledged to be essential reading for all students of librarianship and information management, and an invaluable reference tool for practising library and information professionals.
