Neal-Schuman releases two new books.

Neal-Schuman Publishers announced the release of two new books: Teaching Information Skills: Theory and Practice (ISBN: 1-85604-513-7, 223 pp., $99.95) by Jo Webb and Chris Powers and The Medical Library Association Encyclopedic Guide to Searching and Finding Health Information on the Web (ISBN: 1-55570-496-4, 824 pp., $395 for the three-volume set or the CD-ROM, $495 for the print volume and the CD-ROM) edited by P. F. Anderson and Nancy J. Allee.

In Teaching Information Skills: Theory and Practice Webb and Powers provide a step-by-step guide to developing instructional skills and show librarians how to incorporate these skills into their daily work. Program development is covered in detail, as are the best ways to build working relationships with audiences. The book emphasizes the value of evaluation and the proper methods for supplying feedback. Each chapter focuses on one of eight elements of instruction and is divided into two parts: one part to explain relevant learning and teaching principles and another to analyze successful models.

The Encyclopedic Guide to Searching and Finding Health Information on the Web is available as a softcover, three-volume set print edition and as a CD-ROM. Designed to save reference staff time with recommended sites and search terms, the guide covers search strategies, diseases and disorders, mental health and mental disorders, health and wellness, and life stages and reproduction. Live links to more than 11,000 Web sites are included.
