Why Write Abstracts
Abstracts are important tools for readers.
With the proliferation of information in print, abstracts are more in
demand than ever before.
Abstracts help people identify books they aim
to read or consult for their studies. Rather than inspecting hundreds
of books, researchers can browse through abstracts to decide if a book
is relevant. Abstracts are also invaluable for assessing the quality of a
piece of writing.
An abstract provides an overview of the book
and makes reading the text easier and more efficient. It saves
librarians and researchers time.
Types of Abstracts
There are two types of abstracts: informative and descriptive.
Descriptive Abstract: An
abstract only outlines the topics covered in a book and is not more
useful than a table of contents. It does not fulfil MCA purposes.
Informative Abstract: An informative abstract provides details about the substance of a piece of writing.
