The literature explosion in all branches of science demands up-to-date and reliable guides to primary and secondary sources of knowledge. This book is designed to provide the necessary guidance on the effective use of earth sciences literature. The early chapters deal with matters of general interest libraries and classification; the various types of publications and the purposes they serve; and the problems of searching the literature and of maintaining a reference index. The later chapters are concerned with the literature of the constituent branches of the earth sciences. 459pp. Index. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
