Thomas Mann - The Oxford Guide to Library Research

Sunday, July 26, 2015 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

So, why go to a library when you’ve got the Web at your fingertips? Mann, a Library of Congress general reference librarian for more than thirty years, reminds us that in fact, there’s a lot we don’t have access to on the open internet, and that any substantial overview of a subject requires working beyond Wikipedia and search engines. This clear and useful handbook is a great resource, directing users to the many books and journals ineligible for digitization due to copyright laws but available at a good research library, along with a wide range of electronic subscription-only databases.
