"This title is aimed at Public Services and Reference librarians, however, it is a great reference book for any librarian. Those that work in smaller libraries where duties tend to cross several areas as well as those that work in large libraries with focused responsibilities will appreciate the breadth of the information provided here. Highly recommended." - Journal of Academic Librarianship
