Worldwide sources used - this book truly crosses all geographical boundaries and gives "real-world" examples
In-depth library research giving some unusual and perhaps little-known reference sources such as conference proceedings (p 280), consumer product evaluations (p281), translations (p305), bibliographies (p266), out-of-print and second-hand books (p296) and diaries!

Throughout the book, the author offers some powerful strategies used by librarians by clearly explaining the fundamental methods of searching

This is a terrific book for anyone interested in books and finding information. The author works at the Library of Congress, and has extensive experience looking for information of all kinds. he uses both print and electronic sources, and both to great advantage. His tips on using ordinary sources are exceptional; for example, did you know that the AMERICANA often prints important American speeches in their entirety? If you are a book lover, this is a useful guide, which you will use for a long time.
