A Literature Guide to the Hospitality Industry is an annotated bibliography of materials with the common theme of hospitality. For the purposes of the Literature Guide, the term hospitality includes the food service, travel, lodging, and tourism industries. The bibliography is divided into sections by type of material: periodicals, indexes, reference books, statistical sources and databases. Researchers can use the book's chapters as bibliographies within themselves as well as using the indexes for reference to a specific title, author, or subject. The citations of the Literature Guide provide current information for each title, including author, title, place of publication, publisher, and date of publication. A short annotation is provided to give the researcher a quick review of the contents of the work. This volume is suitable for all public libraries, universities, and technical schools offering programs in hotel and restaurant administration or tourism.

Editorial Reviews

?Sawin's book must be compared with the only other title in a decade to cover the print explosion on the hospitality industry--Judith M. Nixon's Hotel and Restaurant Industries: an Information Sourcebook. Similarities extend beyond the authors' backgrounds in academic libraries at institutions that award degrees in the hospitality field. Despite a two-year publication gap, the approximately 600 citations are largely the same. Both guides offer full bibliographic data in their entries, with author, title, and subject access. Differences are in the approach. In the work by Nixon, chapter headings are another access point, taking their boundaries from the needs of researchers: e.g., Facility Design, ' Core Collection, ' Food Preparation.' Sawin and his University of Wisconsin-Stout colleagues have chapter headings by format: Dictionaries and Encyclopedias, ' Association Publications, ' Directories, ' Handbooks, ' Abstracts and Indexes, ' etc. Researchers with ability to use databases will prefer Sawin's book for that unique chapter. His statistics section is also very strong.?-Choice
