MEDIA REVIEWS
...a useful book for the novice educator - and a timely reminder to the more experienced that case studies can have a greater impact on learning than mere text books. * Australian Library Journal *
A collection of cases similar to those so well developed by Simmons College faculty in the 1960s and 70s; but with the added feature of a helpful introduction on how to teach by the case method. -- Dr. Leigh Estabrook, Professor, Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Case-based teaching is a powerful way to introduce librarians and library students to effective processes for addressing the challenges of library practice. What really sets an expert librarian apart from a novice is much more than the knowledge and experiences the expert has been able to gather over time; it is the ability to deal effectively with new situations within his or her realm of expertise, especially knowing the right questions to ask. This book provides the resources needed for case-based teaching in librarianship. -- Dr. Dianne Oberg, Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada
