Editorial Reviews

Booklist
...one of the cornerstones of any professional collection.
Jal
...a standard fixture in many large libraries...the 16th volume is virtually required reading for those who enjoy thought-provoking commentary on the many complex issues that affect librarians and librarianship.
Library Association Record

Wilson Library Bulletin
...demonstrates that library literature is alive and, on the whole, well...we should, at long last, put to rest the myth that library literature is a disgrace to the profession.
