Book description

First published in 1959, "Walford's Guide to Reference Material" achieved international recognition as a leading bibliographic tool across all subject areas. "The New Walford (TNW) Volume 1: Science, Technology and Medicine" is the first volume of a radically different guide. Published in a three-volume cycle, "TNW" points you to an expertly chosen selection of key, quality resources - accessible via the web and in print - in each subject field (unlike leading search engines). "TNW" has a much simpler subject classification than its predecessor, with resources within the 12 groupings divided between about 100 distinct and generally recognizable subject fields, and then allocated to one of just 13 standard resource categories. The classification is supplemented by a detailed topic index, and each subject grouping has a short introductory essay, highlighting the distinctive features of its reference resources. Each resource is given a succinct description, leading the busy user straight to its key features. This new reference book is valuable for information professionals worldwide who need to suggest resources to people who are relatively unfamiliar with the nuances of a topic and who are asking, 'Where should I start?' The focus is on resources that are most likely to be found and used within public, government, education or business information services. It is also intended for LIS professionals responsible for developing and revising a reference collection, research workers and students. "TNW": is the paper portal to the world of reference resources.
