Download Free A Reference Guide for English Studies PDF by Michael J. Marcuse Full Book and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 1990-01-01 with total page 872 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This ambitious undertaking is designed to acquaint students, teachers, and researchers with reference sources in any branch of English studies, which Marcuse defines as "all those subjects and lines of critical and scholarly inquiry presently pursued by members of university departments of English language and literature.'' Within each of 24 major sections, Marcuse lists and annotates bibliographies, guides, reviews of research, encyclopedias, dictionaries, journals, and reference histories. The annotations and various indexes are models of clarity and usefulness, and cross references are liberally supplied where appropriate. Although cost-conscious librarians will probably consider the several other excellent literary bibliographies in print, such as James L. Harner's Literary Research Guide (Modern Language Assn. of America, 1989), larger academic libraries will want Marcuse's volume.-- Jack Bales, Mary Washington Coll.

Virtually every book has at least one substantial review excerpt, and most have at least two. Every book in Book Review Digest appears with all its reviews together. The Digest includes: A citation to every book review that appears in any of over 5,000+ indexed journals Generous excerpts from book reviews Coverage of books for children with a suggested grade range Entries in Book Review Digest are arranged alphabetically by author, or title if appropriate, and supply: Author Title Paging Publication year Publisher ISBN LC number Descriptive note Review excerpts Notation of illustrations or maps Enhancing its value as both a collection development and general reference tool, Book Review Digest offers subject access to book reviews in a separate Subject and Title Index which also provides subject headings for adult fiction under the entry for ""Fiction themes,"" and gathers biographies in a biography section and juvenile literature into three age ranges. In addition, complete publication data is provided in every issue for each of the journals from which reviews are excerpted.

Fanning, under whose editorship the Digest has been published since 1905, left in September to take a position in the Minneapolis Public Library, and Miss Margaret Jackson, formerly with The Century Company and the New York Public Library, assumed editorial charge at that date. The descriptive notes for September were written by Justina Leavitt Wilson, who has also contributed occasional notes to other numbers during the year. The Dewey classification numbers, a new feature of the 1915 Digest, have been assigned by Miss Corinne Bacon, editor of the forthcoming Standard Catalog. Miss Bacon is one of the advisory committee appointed by the with the cordial approval of Mr. Dewey, to' make recommendations for the expansion of the Dewey classification.
