Books of the Day - Classic tools: US, MA, KY, RI

Books of the Day

One of the keys for librarians is to connect their patrons with the books they really need.
I like to say that "You can't use a book if you don't know it exists". A good bibliography is an invaluable tool getting at just the right material that you need for your research. Over the years I have written and published dozens of detailed bibliographies - and early on I became a life member of the Association for the Bibliography of History.

Today's Books of the Day are just that - bibliographies, working tools that you can use and rely on, classic works that you should know and be familiar with.
