"The summaries are well written and offer not only valuable research for librarians, but also examples of literature reviews for students of library science." - ARBA
"Each of the studies is relevant to building strong library programs, making this a book all school librarians, school library researchers, and graduate students in library programs should consider reading. It would also make an excellent textbook for an introductory school library course, as it introduces several key concepts to new scholars." - The Library Quarterly
