Subject: Re: What's in your Hospitality & Tourism Library Collection?



If your academic or college library or your public library subscribes to the fee based OCLC Worldcat, not the free version that one finds links to in Google Books, the "FIND IN A LIBRARY" link, one can limit searches in that file by year and also in the same search by minimum number of holding libraries. The limits are 50 libraries and 500 libraries. Now if 500 libraries bought a book, chances are that that is a rather important title. One can search for a number of concepts such as "tourism or hospitality or vacationing or traveling or tourist or tourists" in the same search.


WorldCat results for: kw: tourism or kw: hospitality or kw: vacationing or kw: traveling or kw: tourist or kw: tourists and yr: 2000-2011 and la= "eng" and cg: 09 and dt= "bks"


One can then limit this search to those books having these words in subject heading or title only from 2000 to date:


WorldCat results for: (ti: tourism or ti: hospitality or ti: vacationing or ti: traveling or ti: tourist or ti: tourists and yr: 2000-2011 and la= "eng" and cg: 09 and dt= "bks") or (su: tourism or su: hospitality or su: vacationing or su: traveling or su: tourist or su: tourists and yr: 2000-2011 and la= "eng" and cg: 09 and dt= "bks"). (Save Search)
Records found: 122 Rank by: Number of Libraries


Also keep in mind that this result is heavily weighted by the large number of public libraries holdings in this group of 122 book results so that one will need to pick and choose from the noise of novels and very popular nonfiction titles that may not be relevant. One may want to only use tourism or hospitality as search terms and bear in mind other meanings of hospitality for this reason. In this regard, I added a step for juvenile or fiction and eliminated these results from the previous set.


WorldCat results for: (ti: tourism or ti: hospitality or ti: vacationing or ti: traveling or ti: tourist or ti: tourists and yr: 2000-2011 and la= "eng" and cg: 09 and dt= "bks") or (su: tourism or su: hospitality or su: vacationing or su: traveling or su: tourist or su: tourists and yr: 2000-2011 and la= "eng" and cg: 09 and dt= "bks") not (kw: fiction or kw: juvenile or kw: preschool).
