Public Services Quarterly Keeran (arts and humanities reference librarian, U. of Denver) et al. present an overview of research practices in various disciplines: the humanities, music, history, social sciences, business, government publications, sciences, and engineering. Each chapter is written by a librarian in that field, and most are affiliated with the U. of Denver. The book originated in team discussions about research and writing in response to new initiatives at the institution.

The book is aimed at entry-level librarians, graduate students in library and information science, and students and scholars in the discussed fields of study.
