About this title:

Synopsis: The Facet LIS Textbook Collection contains ten core textbooks for students studying library and information science. The books included in the Collection are:
Introduction to Information Science DAVID BAWDEN and LYN ROBINSON
" admirable and highly readable introductory source. Accessible, comprehensive, far-reaching and offering an impressive overview of the relevant literature, Introduction to Information Science is an excellent resource that will likely serve as the standard text for the foreseeable future." - Partnership
Research Methods in Information, 2nd edition ALISON JANE PICKARD
" A strength of the work is its attempt to cover the entire spectrum of research relevant to the LIS community, and Pickard does so very competently ... this work has a clear role in guiding students and practitioners through the research process." - Online Information Review
Exploring Digital Libraries Foundations, practice, prospects KAREN CALHOUN
"The students studying Digital Libraries and Information Services Master's programme at our University are the first to whom I am recommending this book. I would suggest it also to other library and information science programmes as a course book - it addresses most of the topics related to digital libraries as collections and services." - Information Research
Information Resource Description Creating and managing metadata PHILIP HIDER
" excellent introduction both for students and for practitioners new to the field, and the very readable text is well supported by numerous examples, and lists of additional reading. A welcome addition to the literature in this field." - Vanda Broughton, University College London
Introduction to Information Behaviour NIGEL FORD
This landmark textbook is an essential primer for students and practitioners interested in information seeking, needs and behaviour, user studies and information literacy. Using a combination of theory and practical context, Introduction to Information Behaviour maps out what information behaviour is and what we currently know about it, before addressing how it can be better understood in the future. Nigel Ford argues that new understandings of information behaviour research may help maximise the quality and effectiveness of the way information is presented, sought, discovered, evaluated and used.
Introduction to Modern Information Retrieval, 3rd edition G. G. CHOWDHURY
"Chowdhury provides a good understanding of where much of our current systems have come from ? this book would be a good resource for a basic information retrieval course." - College & Research Libraries
Management Basics for Information Professionals, 3rd edition G. EDWARD EVANS and CAMILA A. ALIRE
"For anyone teaching management concepts to library and information science (LIS) students, you could find no better text to assign than Management basics for information professionals. For recent graduates, and those beginning supervisory roles, this is definitely a book to keep in your office." - SLA Leadership and Management Division
Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management, 3rd edition PEGGY JOHNSON
"Must now be considered the essential textbook for collection development and management ?the first place to go for reliable and informative advice." - Technical Services Quarterly 
Reference and Information Services, 3rd edition An introduction KAY ANN CASSELL and UMA HIREMATH
"Different groups of readers will use the book in different ways. The comprehensiveness of its content may help new instructors to define the scope of a course on reference services, clarify the content of the course sections and design assignments. Library school students will benefit from reading the book cover-to-cover, and the most diligent of them will remember it as an important component of their education." - Collection Building
The Information Society, 6th edition A study of continuity and change JOHN FEATHER
"The sixth edition of what has now become a standard textbook in its field, this book has been updated about every four years since the first edition was published in 1994...As an introductory textbook that describes how information has been accumulated, analysed and disseminated through the ages, this book is recommended to library and information students." - Australian Academic and Research Libraries
