"Every librarian takes on new responsibilities for which no previous experience is adequate for the unfamiliar task at hand. In these situations what is often needed is a source that gives step-by-step directions with examples, templates, and outlines. Library and Information Science: A Guide to Key Literature and Sources addresses this individual need and fills this particular niche in the professional literature." -- Journal of Academic Libraries
"As a research starter on a topic in librarianship, I'd say this will be useful for many, especially beginners and librarians in the field who may not have extensive access to LIS sources. For me, I'd keep it on my shelf to check on things now and then as part of keeping up or for my areas of interest. This is one I am suggesting for librarians to at least look over." -- The Itinerant Librarian Blog
