I just finished shelving a cart full of new reference books – always a nice way to spend the morning! I was happy to see several new Russian dictionaries, including Bolshaia ekonomicheskaia entsiklopediia : bolee 7000 ekonomicheskikh i poniatii (REFERENCE HB61.B657 2008) and English-Estonian-Russian Dictonary of Diplomacy (REFERENCE JZ1161.E54 2005).
I also found 2 beautiful new encyclopedias – The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict (REFERENCE DS119.7.E5653 2008) and Encyclopedia of Latin American History & Culture (REFERENCE F1406.E53 2008).
2 new editions of UN statistical publications are now on the shelf – Statistical Yearbook (REFERENCE HA12.5.U63 2007) which features demographic and economic statistics, and Statistical Yearbook for Latin America and the Caribbean (BUSINESS REFERENCE HA741.A58 2007).
