4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the disagreements on abortion date to the beginning of our country, most of its public debate has taken place during the 20th century. Herring examines the issue from the debate's origin to its current state and expected future. Narrative chapters include discussions of the pro and con arguments associated with abortion, featuring quotes from doctors, politicians, religious figures, and ordinary people. First in the new Historical Guides to Controversial Issues in America series, this volume studies the major events and periods in the development of the abortion debate throughout its history. Students will find a nonpartisan approach to landmark cases, acts and amendments, and Pro-Life and Pro-Choice advocates. A list of Pro-Life/Choice Web sites and other electronic resources for further research is included."--Publisher's description
Fool's gold : why the Internet is no substitute for a library by Mark Y Herring( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work skeptically explores the notion that the Internet will soon obviate any need for traditional print-based academic libraries. It makes a case for the library's staying, power in the face of technological advancements (television, microfilm, and CD-ROMs were all once predicted as the contemporary library's heir-apparent), and devotes individual chapters to the pitfalls and prevarications of popular search engines, e-books, and the mass digitization of traditional print material."--Provided by publisher
