In 1965 Dudley F. Randall founded the Broadside Press, a company devoted to publishing, distributing and promoting the works of black poets and writers. In so doing, he became a major player in the civil rights movement. Hundreds of black writers were given an outlet for their work and for their calls for equality and black identity. Though Broadside was established on a minimal budget, Randall's unique skills made the press successful. He was trained as a librarian and had spent decades studying and writing poetry; most importantly, Randall was totally committed to the advancement of black literature. The famous and relatively unknown sought out Broadside, including such writers as Gwendolyn Brooks, Margaret Walker, Mae Jackson, Lance Jeffers, Etheridge Knight, Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, Audre Lorde and Sterling D. Plumpp. His story is one of battling to promote black identity and equality through literature, and thus lifting the cultural lives of all Americans.

Active learning benefits everyone in all levels and types of libraries. Students, the general public, interns, and new reference staff need to find information and conduct research. One way to help them understand research strategies is to provide a structured opportunity to 'experience' information seeking. Llibrarians want learners to retain and apply what is taught. Finding material and writing research papers is a way of life in the schools, colleges and universities which most students attend. Students will continue to use the skills and techniques learned from library instruction throughout their lifetimes. This book includes seven lesson plans covering various topics in "The Arts," seven lesson plans in literature and communications, and six lesson plans in music. Each of the contributing authors is a specialist in his area of expertise and is sharing that knowledge with colleagues. It is an excellent resource for librarians planning sessions to undergraduate students in those disciplines. The format used is one in which each chapter is a lesson plan that includes active learning exercises. Library instruction librarians are able to save a great deal of time with the design of this unique book because the exercises can be easily customized to fit the needs of individual libraries.

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

The "sources" chapters have in-depth descriptions of both print and electronic tools; the "access" chapters relate to finding and retrieving information.
