Outstanding Reference Sources: The 2005 Selection of Recent Titles: RUSA Codes Reference Sources Committee

Article excerpt

The Reference and User Services Association (RUSA), a division of the American Library Association, has selected its 2005 list of Outstanding Reference Sources. The titles, selected by RUSA's Reference Sources Committee, represent high-quality reference works that are suitable for small- to medium-sized libraries.

The list of Outstanding Reference Sources will be published in the spring issue of Reference and User Services Quarterly, the May issue of American Libraries, and the May 1 issue of Reference Books Bulletin (published under the same cover as Booklist). The list is also available on the RUSA's Web site at www.ala.org/ rusa/bestref.html.
