At the American Library Association’s winter meeting earlier this month, the ALA named The SAGE Encyclopedia of Alcohol: Social, Cultural, and Historical Perspectives, edited by Professor Scott C. Martin, as one of ten publications on its 2016 Outstanding References Source List. Academic and public libraries use this list when considering which reference works to purchase for their collections. Andrew Boney, the senior acquisitions editor at SAGE, congratulated Martin for receiving this “great honor in the academic publishing world,” calling the award “well-deserved recognition.” The encyclopedia contains 1,774 pages in three volumes, with a total of 550 entries.
