Print is so familiar that it remains invisible to the average person. Frank Cost, associate dean of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology and co-director of the RIT Printing Industry Center, has often wished for a small, fun-to-read book to give to people who were thinking about the world of print for the first time. Most of the available introductory books concentrate heavily on the technology, but say little about how people actually use print, let alone why. The New Medium of Print is a new kind of book: it provides an introduction to the underlying systems for the creation and distribution of print, as well as an exploration of its many and varied contemporary uses. This book is the first in the Printing Industry Center Series: a co-publication of RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press and RIT Printing Industry Center.
"When the first University of Denver Publishing Institute came to a dose in August 1976, all of us involved in its launching knew that we had a real success on our hands. And we knew it was due in great measure to an outstanding faculty of more than forty top publishing executives who had come to Denver during those four weeks to teach our students. How regrettable, it seemed, that their knowledge and expertise were available only to the eighty students handpicked for that first class. Fred Praeger, publisher of Westview Press, suggested a solution. ""Do a book,"" he invited, ""and let Westview publish the curriculum for others to share."""
Abstract: Up-to-date, available bibliographies, and journals which review books, periodicals, and audiovisual materials relevant to elementary and secondary school instructional programs are presented. The listing is restricted to reviewing tools published since 1976, except for several standard titles which have not been revised or replaced; on specific topic areas e.g., multiethnic materials. Media sources are presented in 4 principal sections: book selection sources; periodicals; audiovisual materials; and multiethnic materials. A directory of publisher's addresses and an author-title index are included. (wz).
When the Handbook for Research in American History was first published, reviewers called it "an excellent tool for historians of all interests and levels of experience . . . simple to use, and concisely worded" (Western Historical Quarterly) and "an excellent work that fulfills its title in being portable yet well-filled" (Reference Reviews). The Journal of American History added, "It is not easy to produce a reference work that is utilitarian and enriching and does not duplicate existing works. Professor Prucha has done the job very well." This second, revised edition takes account of the revolution that is occurring in bibliographic science as printed reference works extend to electronic databases, CD-ROMs, and online networks such as the Internet. Focusing on and expanding the major section of the original Handbook, it provides information on traditional printed works, describes new guides and updated versions of old ones, notes the availability of reference works and of some full-text sources in electronic form, and discusses the usefulness to researchers of different kinds of material and the forms in which they are available. Extensive cross-referencing and a detailed index that includes authors, subjects, and titles enhance the book's usefulness.
