Guide to the Study of United States Imprints

Author: George Thomas Tanselle
Publisher: Harvard University Press
ISBN: 0674367618
Release Date: 1971-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book provides a basic guide to the study of the printed matter which has been produced in the United States. The great bulk of research in this field has occurred during the last half century, yet no comprehensive attempt has been made to record it. Recognizing the need for an up-to-date guide to such investigations, G. Thomas Tanselle has compiled a listing of the principal material dealing with printing and publishing in this country. In his introduction Mr. Tanselle surveys the research which has attempted to trace the history of printing and publishing in America from its inception to the present and explains how this material can be utilized effectively. In nine carefully arranged categories he covers bibliographies of imprints of particular localities; bibliographies of works in particular genres; listings of all editions and printings of works by individual writers; copyright records; catalogues of auction houses, book dealers, exhibitions, institutional libraries, and private collections; retrospective book-trade directories; studies of individual printers and publishers; general studies of printing and publishing; and checklists of secondary material. From the mass of material, an appendix selects 250 titles. Although the work is arranged so that the reader may easily locate relevant sections, a comprehensive index provides further aid in finding individual items. "A successful checklist," writes the author, "is not merely a work to be consulted for information but also a nucleus around which additional information can be gathered in a meaningful way; it provides a framework into which the community of workers in a field can place further references in an organized fashion." Guide to the Study of United States Imprints is a reference tool designed to serve both as a guide to research and as a practical manual for use in identifying, cataloguing, and recording printed matter. It will be of enormous value to scholars in American literature, history, and bibliography, to librarians, typographers, and bibliophiles, and to antiquarian book dealers and book collectors.

Basics of Law Librarianship

Author: Deborah Panella
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136554797
Release Date: 2012-11-12
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Here is an essential introductory guide on all aspects of law librarianship written especially for non-law librarians, library school students, and beginning law librarians. Although there are several excellent practical handbooks and numerous articles on specific topics of law librarianship for practicing law librarians, Basics of Law Librarianship is the only resource that addresses the information needs of the student or new law librarian. Author Deborah Panella, managing librarian of a large, prominent New York law firm, explores the major areas of law librarianship. She covers vital topics such as the legal clientele, collection development, research tools, technical services, impact of technology, and management issues, and describes what makes law libraries different from other special libraries. She has written a clear, readable volume without excessive detail or the use of special terminology. The bibliography of law library literature and the index add enormously to the book’s value as a major reference.

The Legal Bibliography

Author: Scott B. Pagel
Publisher: Psychology Press
ISBN: 0866569324
Release Date: 1989
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Law librarians in any setting will find The Legal Bibliography useful in developing, purchasing, and using bibliographies in the future. Practicing law librarians and bibliographers share their views on the evolving state of the legal bibliography. The rapidly changing world of librarianship presents the information specialist with new methods of accessing bibliographic information. These changes also have implications for the future of the printed bibliography. Some librarians have abandoned--or do not even know of--titles that were once familiar to every member of a reference staff in favor of databases and CD-ROM products. Yet printed bibliographies, some of questionable value, continue to be published and compete for a place on the acquisitions list of many libraries. The law librarian is affected by this change as much, if not more, than other members of the profession. A researcher seeking legal information is usually concerned with the very latest references, bringing into question the adequacy of traditional printed compilations, or compilations produced simply by conducting a database search. Concentrating on their own areas of expertise, the contributors describe their use or creation of legal bibliographies and consider the ways in which technology might be changing their work. Some of the contributors emphasize classic bibliographies of the past, while others look at how the legal bibliography is used by the legal information specialist today and how the changing nature of access to bibliographic information affects their work. Still others speak to the future in discussing projected publications or ideas for alternative methods of creating and distributing bibliographies. The chapters describing some of the major bibliographies of the past will also be valuable. Several of the chapters will be helpful to authors of bibliographies--both legal and non-legal--who should be considering the methods used to produce and distribute their product. This volume will also be essential to those interested in the topic of bibliography for purposes of comparison with other areas of specialization. Ideal for law librarians, library school collections, and anyone interested in the topic of bibliography in general.
