MEDIA REVIEWS
The editor has succeeded in gathering together an exquisite collection of essays covering the past, present, and, to some extent, the future of Africana librarianship in a factual, highly informative, and interesting manner...a valuable source of information for Africana librarians and is highly recommended for academic libraries and African studies collections. * Rq *
The essays...are...of uniform excellence, both in content and style....a fitting honor for a librarian/curator who has made such an outstanding contribution to the profession... * Third World Libraries *
The list of contributors to this volume reads like an informal who's who of African librarians...Taken as a whole, this collection of essays does no less than give us the 'state of the art' as of the end of 1988. * The Library Quarterly *
Interesting reading for any librarian. * Library Journal *
