ABC-CLIO's well-designed site provides access to and flexible searching of the e-book versions of 35 ABC-CLIO reference titles. Access is controlled through passwords or IP recognition. The texts are arranged in ten broad subject categories; users access individual titles by clicking on a category, then an individual title. The versatile search software (Versware) provides simple skimming of the text or accesses specific sections through tables of contents. All texts contain numerous cross-reference links for simple movement through related materials. Besides browsing, Versware provides both simple and advanced searching of individual texts, texts within subject categories, or the full library. The simple search mode defaults to Boolean "AND" for keyword searching. The advanced mode allows case-sensitive searching, matches terms in a thesaurus, enables searching of phrases, and permits specification of word order or maximum number of hits. Searching by word order is the same as Boolean "OR." Search results first appear in brief entries that consist of entry titles plus e-book titles. Text is displayed by clicking on the entry heading. Search terms are highlighted in the text. Results may be displayed by relevance ranking or in alphabetical order. The site provides well-written help and FAQ screens as well as suggested bibliographic citations. For ease of usage, Versware compares favorably with netLibrary's search and browse software, and the ABC-CLIO site's use of Java programming does not require downloading and installation of separate reader software.Four e-books were examined in writing this review: African American Writers: A Dictionary, ed, by Shari Dorantes Hatch and Michael R. Strickland (CH, Dec'00), Mark Grossman's Encyclopedia of the Persian Gulf War (CH, May'96), Encyclopedia of the American Civil War, ed. by David S. Heidler and Jeanne T. Heidler (CH, Jun'01), and June Hannam et al.'s International Encyclopedia of Women's Suffrage, (CH, May'01). Little difficulty was encountered in navigating the site, using the search engines, or reading text. The publisher will need to fix several small problems encountered in May 2001: the site had problems displaying images; the area where the table of contents displays is very small, making its use difficult; both the tables of contents and entries in the e-book versions are arranged alphabetically rather than keeping the page order of the printed edition. These small problems aside, the site provides simple access to a range of high-quality e-books. Recommended for all libraries S. L. Hupp Urbana University
Appeared in Library Journal on 2000-12-01:
In approximately 230 entries, which range from suffragists, nations, and organizations to such headings as "friendship networks" and "drama, novels, poetry, and film," this volume seeks to embrace the entire suffragist movement. The text dates back to Mary Wollstonecraft. The entries themselves vary from one column (few entries are shorter) to several pages, making this a quick resource rather than a means of in-depth study on a particular topic. The authors, all British academics, seek "to shift the focus of attention awayfromthe United States and Britain," but because they rely on only English-language sources, the entries favor English-speaking countries and Western institutions. Thus, Canada receives 14 columns of text, and China seven columns; Protestantism and Catholicism get entries, but Islam does not. The international scope comes from "a sample of countriesfrom all five continents" and a few review essays, such as the entry "Africa South of the Sahara." Oddly, the United States entry lacks a chronology of state ratifications. Still, the information is accurate, and much of the material is not readily available elsewhere. The introduction is thoughtful and well written, and the resource is supplemented by a brief chronology of nation suffrage and a bibliography, including videocassettes and web sites. This reviewer could locate no comparable reference work. Recommended for all libraries.DCynthia Harrison, George Washington Univ., Washington, DC (c) Copyright 2010.
