The information world has undergone drastic changes since the publication of the 3rd edition of The Oxford Guide to Library Research in 2005, and Thomas Mann, a veteran reference librarian at the Library of Congress, has extensively revised his text to reflect those changes. This book will answer two basic questions: First, what is the extent of the significant research resources you will you miss if you confine your research entirely, or even primarily, to sources available on the open Internet? Second, if you are trying to get a reasonably good overview of the literature on a particular topic, rather than just "something quickly" on it, what are the several alternative methods of subject searching--which are not available on the Web--that are usually much more efficient for that purpose than typing keywords into a blank search box, with the results displayed by relevance-ranking computer algorithms? This book shows researchers how to do comprehensive research on any topic. It explains the variety of search mechanisms available, so that the researcher can have the reasonable confidence that s/he has not overlooked something important. This includes not just lists of resources, but discussions of the ways to search within them: how to find the best search terms, how to combine the terms, and how to make the databases (and other sources) show relevant material even when you don't know how to specify the best search terms in advance. The book's overall structuring by nine methods of searching that are applicable in any subject area, rather than by subjects or by types of literature, is unique among guides to research. Also unique is the range and variety of concrete examples of what to do--and of what not to do. The book is not "about" the Internet: it is about the best alternatives to the Internet--the sources that are not on the open Web to begin with, that can be found only through research libraries and that are more than ever necessary for any kind of substantive scholarly research. More than any other research guide available, this book directly addresses and provides solutions to the serious problems outlined in recent studies documenting the profound lack of research skills possessed by today's "digital natives."

Now in its third edition, this essential guide to basic reference sources in the social sciences provides evaluative entries for approximately 1,600 works in anthropology, business, economics, education, geography, history, law, political science, psychology, and sociology. The first part of the book includes chapters on general sources, while the second contains chapters on reference works in particular disciplines. Most titles published before 1980, which appear in the second edition, have been dropped, while a large number of electronic sources, including more than 200 web sites, have been added. In recognition of the proliferation of electronic information resources, the volume provides brief descriptions of the features and search methods of several online vendors.

Since the 18th Century, Americans have engaged in the pursuit of happiness through the consumption of material things. It is written in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution that Americans have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Interestingly, the pursuit has resulted in suicide for more white males 65 years old and over than any other age group. Louisiana is the second most unhealthiest state in America, and 40 million Americans live without any health insurance. These signs of unhappiness have continued to evolve over time. By 1950, Americans produced $43.7 billion worth of manufactured goods, and by 1958, $141 billion. The average annual salary for males was $2,831 in 1958; $1,559 for females. During this time, the American household was classified as husband-wife. In 1920, 86.0 percent were husband-wife; by 1960, this percent declined to 70.0 percent. Divorce accelerated by 1960. During the 1950s, the husband-wife household was already rapidly giving way to a new form-"Single-Parent." If this pursuit of happiness through object consumption is working, then, the reverse would be true. To grasp the social decay occurring in American society today, it is essential to understand the 1920 to 1960 period.

Natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, floods, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and hurricanes cause environmental, economic as well as sociological problems worldwide. In recent years, greater availability of information and sensational media reports of natural hazard occurrence -and in particular in terms of property damage or loss oflife caused by these hazards -resulted in an increase of hazard awareness at a societal level. This increase in public awareness has often been misconstrued as an indication that natural hazards have been occurring more frequently with higher magnitudes in recent years/decades, thus causing more damage than in the past. It is still under debate, however, to which extent recent increases in damage can be related to changing frequencies of natural processes, or whether catastrophic events occur at similar rates as they always had. If the latter is the case, the reason for a greater damage can be related to dramatic population growth over the last century, with a substantial augmentation of population density in some regions. Indeed, the implications are more server in underdeveloped and developing countries, where urbanisation has increasingly occurred in hazard prone areas such as coastal zones, alluvial river plains and steep slopes, thus causing an increase in the exposure to natural hazards. Some groups of society in wealthy countries accept higher risks in order to live directly on top of a cliff or on a steep slope to enjoy panoramic views of the landscape.
