Editorial Reviews

Reference Reviews
Covering articles, books, conference papers, dissertations and reports, this substantial Scarecrow Press paperback contains 1,949 entries on the 'subject of librarianship throughout the Islamic world.'...Presentation is in generous single-column layout across the page and the whole is refreshingly easy on the eye, avoiding the cluttered appearance that often mars this type of listing....This is a basic bibliography that...conveniently regurgitates material on librarianship and information science in the Islamic World found in major databases and other sources.
American Libraries
With nearly 2,000 entries, Sterling Joseph Coleman Jr. provides a comprehensive look at librarianship in 34 Islamic countries.

Information & Culture
