'œA cross-and multidisciplinary sourcebook.... Woodbury, an experienced reference librarian, administrator, and author, defines the book's age parameters as those transitional ones between childhood and adulthood: 13 to 19. Coverage is limited to the US and Canada. An overview chapter analyzes steps in the research process, explaining subject headings and thesauri; describes local, state, and federal sources; and previews material in subsequent chapters. These include more than 600 listings of printed items--e.g., abstracting and indexing services, bibliographies, dictionaries, directories, encyclopedias, library catalogs, serials, statistics, and surveys. Nonprint tools include more than 60 online databases and 250 clearinghouses and organizations. Education, family, health, law, physiology, psychology, sex, sports, vandalism, and violence are among the subjects treated. Citations are complete, including price, and annotations are evaluative as well as explanatory. Arrangement is alphabetical by title or name. There are two indexes: author/title organization and subject/format. Although other reference books include the data in this unique bibliography, the convenience of a single sources makes it invaluable.... Recommended for secondary school, public, and those academic libraries with strong social science collections.'' ChoiceMarda L.
