Guide to Information Sources in Mathematics and Statistics (Reference Sources in Science and Technology)

Buy
This book was conceived as a reference for librarians, mathematicians, and statisticians involved in college- and research-level mathematics and statistics in the twenty-first century. Now in a time of transition in scholarly communications in mathematics, practices that 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.

Professional mathematicians and statisticians working today demonstrate a variety of expertise in their use of the literature. Practitioners who have worked in the field for years may primarily use paper-based methods to do their research and increase current awareness; some may incorporate a blend of old and new approaches. Other researchers who have never even used a paper index and seldom physically come to a library still depend on knowledgeable librarians. Librarians serving this diverse population must be familiar with all resources and must also continuously teach their users when old techniques no longer work. This guide is our effort to highlight resources, both digital and paper, that we find useful.
