Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Shanna Swigert Smith
This book offers a wealth of information for any informational professional, management or otherwise. The book is not lengthy but covers a wide array of topics that are categorized as manager's role, running a library, information technology, staff, and public relations. These categories contain chapters written by various library professionals from both public and academic libraries. Each chapter is very small, but the information is concise and examples are provided. The book is written as a manual for common issues, so readers may refer to specific chapters as needed. A detailed table of contents and thorough index are available, as well as a list of contributors with biographies. The author biographies are especially helpful in gleaning the authority of a chapter's information. This book is pleasantly surprising; it is quick and easy to read, and there is continuity to the writing, despite the large number of authors. Additionally, pertinent and current issues are addressed, such as connecting with student employees via Facebook. It is also important to mention that this book does not necessarily need to be read straight through because the formatting allows for browsing and skimming. Librarians should familiarize themselves with the subjects covered in this book, and then keep the title close at hand for when those issues arise. Reviewer: Shanna Swigert Smith
