Reviews

A tool for library school students, new librarians, the public library reference desk, or anyone needing a general resource about providing information services and recommended tools of the trade ... A well-written, readable work that is worth adding to a general ready-reference collection or a library student's bookshelf."" - Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries

"Library school students will benefit from reading the book cover-to-cover, and the most diligent of them will remember it as an important component of their education ... The book is an irreplaceable source that can be recommended as an essential item for any library's professional collection."" - Collection Building
