New book: Guide to Information Sources in Mathematics and Statistics

Feb 3, 2005 by

It is a good period for book-publishing librarians! Joseph Kraus told on PAMNET about a new guide to maths resources:
Tucker, Martha A.; Anderson, Nancy D. Guide to Information Sources in Mathematics and Statistics (Reference Sources in Science and Technology). Westport, Conn.: Libraries Unlimited, 2004.
ISBN: 1563087014

Product Description (from the publisher):
This book is a reference for librarians, mathematicians, and statisticians involved in college and research level mathematics and statistics in the 21st century. We are in a time of transition in scholarly communications in mathematics, practices which have changed little for a hundred years are giving way to new modes of accessing information. Where journals, books, indexes and catalogs were once the physical representation of a good mathematics library, shelves have given way to computers, and users are often accessing information from remote places. Part I is a historical survey of the past 15 years tracking this huge transition in scholarly communications in mathematics. Part II of the book is the bibliography of resources recommended to support the disciplines of mathematics and statistics. These resources are grouped by material type. Publication dates range from the 1800′s onwards. Hundreds of electronic resources-some online, both dynamic and static, some in fixed media, are listed among the paper resources. Amazingly a majority of listed electronic resources are free.
