Editorial Reviews

"Sociology has long needed a bibliographic guide to its reference literature.... Through its tripartite structure, [Finding the Source in Sociology and Anthropology] serves various audiences and purposes. Its first section, an annotated bibliography of basic reference sources in the social sciences organized by type of source, will make this attractive to faculty and graduate students in sociology who, unlike reference librarians do not have ready access to sources.... The second section describes seventy additional sources specific to the associated disciplines of education, economics, psychology, social work, anthropology, and history. Within each of these disciplines, reference works are listed by genre. Like the first section, this offers faculty and graduate students convenience. It is the third section that will appeal to reference librarians as well as to these other audiences. By reference genre it describes printed reference tooks and databases useful in sociology research.... This fills a longstanding gap in academic and large public libraries' reference collections."-Wilson Library Bulletin
