"What makes Woodward's book successful, besides her very thorough research and presentation of it, is her inclusion of tips in each section, as well as tales from those who have been through the 'construction wars.'"
..".if your library is one of those undergoing, or about to undergo, construction work, you'll find [this book] especially helpful... Recommended."
"Woodward's very practical, sensible book will be a boon to both novice and veteran librarians... [T]he hours invested in reading this book as an introductory text and in returning to it as a reference guide will pay ongoing dividends."
