This second edition, enlarged from 125 to 223 titles, is intended to facilitate the use of abstracts and indexes in the fields of science and technology by means of a descriptive outline. Scholars can not only find out what tools are available in their subjects but can also learn how to use them. The book aids librarians in showing patrons how to use material and shows students and teachers the uses of the important guides to scientific publications. An innovation in the second edition is the addition of information about databases.
