Abstract : The guide is intended to introduce to APL staff members the variety of abstracting and indexing journals available in the collections of the APL libraries. These bibliographic tools are of great value in searching the literature, particularly when exploring a new field. Most scientists are acquainted with the abstract journals in their immediate specialties, but are not so familiar with those in disciplines impinging on their own, which may also include material pertinent to their own work. This publication is being issued in the hope of making these useful resources better known to APL staff members. Attention is called to those publications listed in the subject index under 'Current Awareness.' This group of journals is designed to give the most rapid notice possible of new research, including, in some cases, papers not yet published. They constitute a valuable source of current information, preceding the abstract journals by several months in most cases.
