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.

Flagg, Charles Allcott. A guide to Massachusetts local history; being a bibliographic index to the literature of the towns, cities and counties of the state, including books, pamphlets, articles in periodicals and collected works, books in preparation, historical manuscripts, newspaper clippings, etc. Salem, MA: Salem Press Co., 1907. 512p.
