For nearly twenty-five years A Research Guide for Undergraduate Students has helped students avoid the pitfalls of conducting library research for term papers and theses. Fully updated and revised, the sixth edition shows undergraduates how to use their research time efficiently and advises them how to locate and evaluate material available from electronic databases and the Internet. Nancy L. Baker and Nancy Huling, librarians for over thirty years, bring their experience to a clear and concise tour of the typical college library and provide easy-to-understand summaries of the print and electronic research tools available to students.
