First published in 1959, "Walford's Guide to Reference Material" achieved international recognition as a leading bibliographic tool across all subject areas. "The New Walford (TNW) Volume 3: Arts, Humanities and General Reference", is the third volume of the successful new, radically different Guide, which is already receiving critical acclaim. Published in a three-volume cycle, "TNW" points you to an expertly chosen selection of key, quality resources - accessible via the web and in print - in each subject field. Compiled by subject specialists from internationally renowned organizations, Volume 3 covers broad subject groupings within the arts, humanities and general reference. "TNW" has a much simpler subject classification than its predecessor, with resources within the 12 groupings divided between about 100 distinct and generally recognizable subject fields, and then allocated to one of just 13 standard resource categories. The classification is supplemented by a detailed topic index, and each subject grouping has a short introductory essay, highlighting the distinctive features of its reference resources. Each resource is given a succinct description, leading the busy user straight to its key features. This new reference book is valuable for information professionals worldwide who need to suggest resources to people who are relatively unfamiliar with the nuances of a topic and who are asking, 'Where should I start?' The focus is on resources that are most likely to be found and used within public, government, education or business information services. It is also intended for LIS professionals responsible for developing and revising a reference collection, research workers and students.

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.
