Tourism and Hospitality : Handbooks Defined 

 

    Tourism Handbooks in Print and On the Internet

 

    This is a selected group of handbooks

    of various kinds that illustrate and

    support the role of the handbook

    in providing topically specific but

    detailed coverage of various aspects

    of tourism including specific

    geographic regions and places of

    interest to tourism and tourists.

 

    From the ODLIS Online Dictionary

    for Library and Information Science

    by Joan M. Reitz

 

    This definition of handbook:

 

    handbook

 

    A single-volume reference book of

    compact size that provides concise

    factual information on a specific

    subject, organized systematically for

    quick and easy access. Statistical

    information is often published in

    handbook form (example: Statistical

    Handbook on the American Family). Some

    handbooks are published serially

    (CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics).

    Synonymous with vade mecum.

    See also: companion and manual.

Handbook From Wikipedia 

 

    A handbook is a type of reference work, or other collection

    of instructions, that is intended to provide ready    

    reference.

 

    A vade mecum (lat. "go with me") or pocket reference is

    intended to be carried at all times.

 

    Handbooks may deal with any topic, and are generally

    compendiums of information in a particular field or about a   

    particular technique. The name "handbook" may sometimes

    be applied to reference works that are not pocket-sized,

    but do provide ready reference, as is the case with several

    engineering handbooks....

Medical Tourism Facilitator's Handbook 

 

    Medical Tourism Facilitator's Handbook

    Author Maria K. Todd

    Edition illustrated

    Publisher CRC Press, 2011

    ISBN 1439812837, 9781439812839

    Length 180 pages

 

From the introduction: "In a nutshell, medical tourism is the

practice of traveling outside one's hometown to access

medical or dental care, or costly and sophisticated diagnostic

testing. For most medical travelers, depending on the

destination location and procedure sought, the savings can

be from 50% to as great as 90% of the price paid at home.

It amazes me when people in the health care and insurance

industries look at me dumbfounded when I speak about

medical tourism. Some furrow their eyebrows, others shake

their heads in bewilderment, and still others dismiss the idea

with some offhand comment that if they ignore it, it will not

exist. I have a cat that does the last response to many things,

but she's a cat. Most of the folks I hang out with are executives

in health care or insurance, health law attorneys, academics,

or health care professionals. Not cats! So when they dismiss

this growing trend, I have to wonder where they will be in

the next 5 years. In the United States, there are around

7,500 hospitals with their doors still open. That too, amazes

me when I see who is at the helm, and their leadership style,

market awareness, and lack of strategic planning."

TOURISM: SUBJECT GUIDE: HANDBOOKS :
Tourism Handbooks in Print and On the Internet

Tourism Handbooks in Print and On the Internet

This is a selected group of handbooks
of various kinds that illustrate and

support the role of the handbook
in providing topically specific but

detailed coverage of various aspects
of tourism including specific

geographic regions and places of
interest to tourism and tourists.


From the ODLIS Online Dictionary
for Library and Information Science

by Joan M. Reitz

This definition of handbook:

handbook

A single-volume reference book of
compact size that provides concise

factual information on a specific
subject, organized systematically for

quick and easy access. Statistical
information is often published in

handbook form (example: Statistical
Handbook on the American Family). Some

handbooks are published serially
(CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics).

Synonymous with vade mecum.
See also: companion and manual.

.

Handbook
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handbook


A handbook is a type of reference work,
or other collection of
instructions, that is
intended to provide ready reference.
A vade mecum
(lat. "go with me") or
pocket reference is intended to be carried
at all
times.

Handbooks may deal with any topic, and
are generally compendiums of
information
in a particular field or about a particular
technique.


<snip>

The name "handbook" may sometimes be
applied to reference works that are

not pocket-sized, but do provide ready
reference, as is the case with

several engineering handbooks....
