Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

Abstract : Purpose: This study aims to explore how government sources provide authoritative data that students can utilize to complete academic course assignments. The study measures student use of government materials and suggests that librarians incorporate government resources into information literacy instruction. Design/methodology/approach: A five-question paper-and-pencil feedback survey was developed by the researchers and completed at the end of the semester by students in several sections of health and social work classes. The survey measured the level and ease of usage of government information/websites. Students also identified US and state government sources they used to complete their assignments. Findings: Government information can become a critical resource for a life-long learning experience when introduced to students early in their academic careers in freshmen seminars or introductory courses. Government information can be utilized as an authoritative source for research assignments. In addition, students anticipate using government information as they enter their professional careers. Librarians and faculty can work in tandem to build students' government information literacy skills. Research limitations/implications: While this study focuses on health and social work, use of online government information by other disciplines should be further investigated. Social implications: The findings will be useful for integrating government information into information literacy sessions. Improved familiarity of government information creates more informed professionals and citizens. Originality/value: This study adds to the body of literature on government literacy. Recommendations are offered on familiarizing users with government sources and improving access to documents via multiple library access points.
