"Growing out of a conference hosted by the Libiary of Congress, this collection of bibliographic essays covers the historical legacy of Spain in North America from the first sighting of the continent by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1512 to today, when Hispanics comprise the fastest growing minority community in the United States. Written by experts on Hispanic manuscripts and collections, the essays focus on a discussion of archival sources available for the study of Spanish conquest and colonization in what is now the United States, the lands that the Spanish referred to as La Florida and Tierra Incognita del Norte." "The first part addresses questions of managing documentation and identifying sources of archival materials throughout the United States and Spain. Other parts, on research and projects, describe new ways that scholars have used available information to portray the Hispanic experience in North America. Subsequent chapters describe technological advancements that are making archival materials available in a variety of formats. The volume concludes with the recommendation that the United States produce a comprehensive guide to archives and collections for the study of the Hispanic experience in the United States." "The controversy over the significance of the Columbian voyages, particularly as we celebrate their quincentenary, makes this volume an essential tool for those interested in the history of North America's conquest, those studying the Hispanic experience in the New World, and those wishing to examine their own heritage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Which university in the world has the largest library? What is the name of Europes oldest public library? What year was the first CD-ROM book released? In what years were the first books in English, French, Spanish and Turkish printed? When was the first major computer database released? What is the title of the largest book ever published? Where is the worlds busiest public library? To find the answers to these questions, you could spend days scanning hundreds of reference sources in several different libraries, but the answers to all of these questions can be found in this volume. This book not only provides information about and comparisons of libraries; it is also a story of libraries and books from the earliest times to the present. The hundreds of facts about libraries, periodicals, books and reference databases around the world illustrate their evolution from crude and simple to sophisticated, complex and efficient. The books more than 300 entries are organized by national libraries; public and subscription libraries; university and academic libraries; specialty libraries and archives; books, periodicals and bookstores; catalogs, databases and technology; information science organizations and library buildings. Librarian and information consultant Godfrey Oswald is also the creator of The Info Connect LIS Directory, the largest available alphabetical directory on the Internet for librarians. He lives in London, England.

Written by some of the most experienced practitioners and managers in the field of cataloging, this collection examines cooperative cataloging activities in its many forms. Containing both case studies and research studies, as well as opinion pieces, it explores the benefits and cost-effectiveness of cooperative cataloging programs such as the OCLC Enhance program, and Program for Cooperative Cataloging programs such as BIBCO, CONSER, NACO, and SACO. It also provides an introduction to less well-known cooperative efforts such as the Library of Congress National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC) and the ISSN Register. Cooperative cataloging efforts offer creative opportunities for managers and administrators as they attempt to provide effective intellectual access to the rapidly increasing number of publications acquired by our libraries. This book will help such professionals to evaluate the effectiveness of cooperative efforts and apply them in their own unique circumstances. This book was published as a special issue in Cataloging & Classification Quarterly.
