About the Author

Dr. Laurie J. Sampsel is Professor and Faculty Director of the Howard B. Waltz Music Library at the University of Colorado at Boulder.


"A much-needed addition to the library and bibliography instruction literature."--Cheryl Taranto, University of Nevada, Las Vegas "Sampsel encourages students to be independent learners and researchers. We had been lacking a text that would work well at the graduate and undergraduate level--this text fits the bill."--Vicki Stroeher, Marshall University "This book gives the student researcher powerful tools right at his or her disposal. Sampsel has carefully selected what information to include; her skills as a 'gatekeeper' are exemplary."--Gerald Szymanski, Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester "Well-organized and succinct."--Holly Gardinier, Claremont Colleges
