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.
Information & Culture
...it should be included in reference collections for students of library science and international librarianship and as an aid to enlarging the limited Western view of affairs in the Islamic world....serves a worthwhile purpose.
(International) Library Progress
...a work of labour, skill and faith...It will be treasured by the Islamic scholars and students.
