About this product
- DescriptionCommercials for the largest subscription database indicate that the process of genealogy is simple-you just plug in what you kw, and the database does the rest! Those ads might sell subscriptions, but they are misleading. Getting beyond that low-hanging fruit is t so easy; collecting the records and data needed to delineate a family tree accurately requires time, organization, and informed searching. Records are available from many places, and finding them is never a one-stop shopping experience. So how does the new researcher identify which resources meet his or her specific research needs? And how can libraries and librarians best help this new generation of genealogists? Genealogy: A Practical Guide for Librarians offers help on several levels: First, librarians can use this book to learn what resources, both print and online, their library should offer their patron base. This means t only what mographs to purchase and subscription databases to maintain, but what websites to highlight at the library's webpage, what to include in their online tutorials, what adult education programming is appropriate. Critical assessments of print and online resources are given, including the strengths and weaknesses that librarians need to help patrons understand them. Second, both librarians and researchers can find here an in-depth discussion of the research process itself, including the best steps for a beginning researcher and search strategies for the experienced one. And third, anyone can use this book to become better informed about the phemen of genealogy itself and about the latest standards for online searching and research. The book includes practical advice for every public-service librarian and offers all researchers, from vice level to experienced, a clearly delineated context for the popular subject of family history research.
