- DescriptionThe fourth edition contains an updated core list of the best current business resources, as well as a collection of new essays on important topics in business librarianship.

The essays cover such topics as: * Marketing the business library * Organizing business libraries and information centers * Acquiring business books * Developing a business reference collection * Accessing government documents * Evaluating online and investment resources * Assessing the state of business libraries in 2001 This volume will serve as a checklist of essential business reference tools that smaller libraries can use to evaluate their collections, and provides a guide to the best practices for smaller libraries seeking to begin or expand a business reference collection.
