Long description:

This title was first published in 2001. Comprehensively updated, this three-volume edition of the Manual of Online Search Strategies covers the whole range of Internet, CD-ROM and dial-up online services, and includes several new chapters. International experts on each subject area, selected from the UK and North America, describe in detail how to identify and exploit specialist bibliographic and non-bibliographic databases, the best search methods and delivery modes, and the relative merits of different services and online hosts in their different disciplines. Numerous examples of search results are used to illustrate different strategies and commands. Each volume includes the editors? introductory chapter on search strategies, which gives an overview of searching language, platforms and vendors, interfaces and search and database evaluation methods. The Manual can be used as a subject handbook, a directory of recommended resources and as a textbook. This new edition provides extensive guidance for searchers of electronic information and is particularly useful for those working in a subject area other than their own. Readers will gain a professional 'edge' from the skill and wisdom that the specialist authors have passed on in their chapters and will be able to expand their searching techniques into new areas.

Choice '... an essential resource for professional searchers and information retrieval educators.' The Australian Library Journal ?...these volumes provide much useful help and advice to online searchers...? Information Management Report
