About the book:

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. Updated and revised, the sixth edition shows undergraduates how to use their research time efficiently and how to locate and evaluate material available from electronic databases and the Internet.

Nancy L. Baker and Nancy Huling bring their experience as librarians to a concise tour of the typical college library and provide easy-to-understand summaries of the print and electronic research tools available to students. Along the way, they describe nearly fifty reference works and research aids, including:

Literature Resource Center
Expanded Academic ASAP
Literature Online (LION)
Library of Congress Subject Headings
MLA International Bibliography
Oxford English Dictionary
ProQuest Research Library

The Research Guide provides dozens of samples from these reference materials. It discusses how to navigate a library's electronic catalog; how to search for articles and books; how to use primary sources; and how to locate biographical information, quotations, and miscellaneous facts. A new chapter deals with bibliographic citation managers, such as EndNote.
