not yet rated|write a review
This reference identifies information resources concerning virtual reality and provides detailed instruction on how to use these resources in an effective research strategy. Most of the chapters overview particular types of information sources, such as periodical and citation indexes, conference proceedings, technical reports, dissertations, and monographs. The chapters explain how to use these tools to gather information about virtual reality, and discussions of key resources are always placed in the larger context of information-gathering strategies specific to the field. Most of the resources are available in large public and academic libraries. The volume does not presuppose sophisticated technical knowledge of libraries, and it is written for the student and general researcher. The volume concludes with a set of algorithms that can be used to locate resources in the most typical searches, and a list of producers and publishers of related material.
