Booklist Reviews 2003 September #1

This revised edition reflects the dramatic changes in the world of business reference and resources over the past seven years. Since the last edition, the Internet and online access to information have become more affordable and more pervasive in libraries of all sizes.Part 1, "Core List of Printed Business Reference Sources," has been extensively examined, evaluated, updated, and revised. Titles selected for inclusion--a collection of 210 resources with a 2002 total cost of $65,204.98--reflect the changes in the economy and business culture. Whenever possible less costly alternative titles are mentioned, and there are suggestions for items that could be purchased every two, three, or even five years. Each entry is listed alphabetically by title in the core list and includes title, author, place of publication, publisher, date, cost, publisher URL if available, authority and scope, and short evaluation of the resource's strengths and weaknesses. This list is essential as a checklist for business reference tools. A new, important chapter, "Marketing the Business Library," has been added to part 2, "Business Reference Sources and Services: Essays." The chapter "Continuing Training of the Business Information Professional in the 1990s" was dropped. A bibliographic essay on business libraries replaces the chapter on "Literature of Business Reference and Business Libraries." The other essays were totally revised by expert practitioners. Most have new authors, and the online databases chapter was reviewed by three consultants. Prices for online resources are not included because many factors influence them.In its fourth edition, this book will once again be used as a guide to best practices for small libraries seeking assistance in business reference. Lorna Daniells' Business Information Sources (Univ. of California, 1993), long a standard in business reference, is now very out of date. The Basic Business Library should be used in conjunction with Michael R. Lavin's third edition of Business Information: How to Find It, How to Use It (Oryx, 2001) to complete the business resources picture. ((Reviewed September 1, 2003)) Copyright 2003 Booklist Reviews

LJ Reviews 2003 June #1

In this fourth edition, editors Karp and Schlessinger, along with 12 expert practitioners and three online database consultants, update the core list of current print business resources and provide an outstanding chapter entitled, "Online in the Information Age-Access to Business Databases." Last revised in 1994 (Professional Media, LJ 12/94), the core list now includes 210 titles, listed alphabetically. Each entry provides title, author or editor, place of publication, publisher, year, cost, web site (if applicable), authority and scope, and a short evaluation. According to the introduction, the total cost of these resources is $65,204.98, with the "budget conscious resources" list totaling $34,981.98. Joseph P. Grunenwald has written a vital new essay, "Marketing the Business Library," and Barbara A. Huett expanded the timely chapter on "The Best Investment Sources," especially valuable when money markets and CDs are no longer a hedge against inflation even for small investors. A very thorough index completes access to this valuable collection development tool. Michael R. Lavin's third edition of Business Information: How To Find It, How To Use It (Greenwood, 2001) is a complementary resource but not as comprehensive for business reference sources.-Susan Awe, Parish Lib., Univ. of New Mexico, Albuquerque Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
