“If you were stranded on a desert island and had to create a reference/information service with only ten sources, which ten would you choose?” The question posed by an editor of this journal provokes a cartoon vision of a tiny islet, one palm tree, and a sinking ship in the distance. A much more pleasant image to build upon would be a large, well‐equiped island, with a home ready for occupancy by our family—my wife and me plus our two sons, who still live with us. The house would have all the appropriate amenities, shelving for a couple thousand volumes, and of course, room for the ten reference sources that we would be bringing ashore.
