Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Janet A. Crum, MLS (Oregon Health and Science University)
Description: This book provides a general overview of major topics related to developing and managing a nursing library. Its ten chapters cover topics such as administrative considerations (budgeting, personnel, etc.), information and educational services, collection development, cataloging, special collections, preservation of materials, learning centers, and programs and services of the National Library of Medicine.
Purpose: The purpose of this work is twofold — to provide an overview of issues related to providing information services and to direct readers to additional sources of information.
Audience: This work is aimed at administrators of nursing programs, nurses, and librarians in nursing libraries.
Features: The most valuable features of this work, other than the text itself, are the reference lists at the end of each chapter. These lists include resources useful for carrying out tasks described in the previous chapter and suggested readings for further information on topics discussed.
Assessment: Though written with nursing libraries in mind, this book will be useful to individuals responsible for any type of health sciences library. It fulfills its dual purposes of providing a general overview and directing readers to other resources very well. The text is clear and relatively jargon-free, offering a useful introduction for individuals who do not have formal training in library and information science but who are responsible for the administration or management of a library. Many librarians will also find it valuable as a refresher on topics not part of their current areas of specialization.
