Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
According to the introduction, the first edition of this title (Linworth, 1994) concentrated on why, whereas this one focuses on how. The author is a former teacher and principal and writes from the administrator's perspective. The text reads like a research paper, better organized and planned than many written by students, but larded with footnotes. The citations are listed chapter-by-chapter. The organization of material is good, presenting first a concept and then its implications for librarians. Workbook-style pages are liberally sprinkled throughout and range from checklists to fill in the blanks. The information reads like a manual for "How to Succeed in-." Many of the ideas presented seem banal, but might present new librarians with concepts they did not encounter in library school. Experienced librarians will find the ideas a rehash of journal articles and seminars. Librarians who first gained experience as teachers won't find anything new here.-Marilyn Fairbanks, Azure IRC, Brockton High School, MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
