Overview

Although more than 200 mental health libraries exist in the U.S. and Canada, literature on their specialized collections remains scattered. In response to this need for information, Johnson has edited a collection that addresses the special resources, collection development needs, policies, and user services of libraries in mental health settings. The chapter authors are librarians in the U.S. and Canada with expertise in providing informational services in specialized areas of mental health such as psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, developmental disabilities, mental health policy, and community mental health. Library Services in Mental Health Settings is meant to be useful to the graduate library student, public librarian, health sciences librarian, and mental health professional in learning more about the history of mental health library services, the potential for collection development, and provides a mechanism by which librarians can evaluate and improve their services. Includes tables, index, and six appendixes which include a list of organizations involved in the accreditation process, a directory of university affiliated programs for persons with mental health disabilities, and a directory of mental health libraries in the U.S. and Canada.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Lisca
As in all other areas of medicine, mental health librarians are expected to expand their services to a wider circle of users while contending with shrinking budgets. This book provides networking channels for combining resources as one means to meet the increasing information demands.
Medical Reference Services Quarterly
...a solid, basic overview...Mary Johnson does an excellent job of weaving together information on a significant and complex area of librarianship...recommend...the book for purchase by any university which has a curriculum in library and information science. This is an ambitious book...the editor is successful in providing a provocative, timely discussion on mental health librarianship. Congratulations to Mary Johnson and her contributors.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Cathryn M. Jordan(VA Medical Center Portland)
Description: This book covers mental health policy, the librarian's role in mental health, and the provision of information services to mental health professionals as well as to consumers with mental disabilities.
Purpose: It is meant to serve as an overview of mental health librarianship, provide suggestions for collection development, and discuss skills useful in working with library patrons who have mental disabilities. These objectives are well met, particularly the collection development issues.
Audience: This book is written for library school students, practicing librarians, mental health professionals, and laypersons. It is most appropriate for librarians new to the mental health field.
Features: The editor and contributors are well known in the field of mental health librarianship. They have provided a wealth of information about the mental health field and how librarians fit in. References are fairly up to date; the excellent appendixes include listings of institutions and policy statements.
Assessment: This book would be most helpful to the library school student or to a librarian who is new to the mental health field. Chapter 11 would be a good resource to any library collecting in these areas to ensure currency. The Internet Resources are especially welcome in today's online world. I believe any library or librarian working with mental health professionals or patients would benefit from perusing this title.

Library Journal
There are more than 200 mental health libraries in the United States and Canada. Edited by the library director of the Missouri Institute of Mental Health, this volume successfully addresses the wide variety of issues in this field. The group of contributors represents a cadre of professionals whose knowledge easily covers that of the field. Their historical observations as well as the hands-on information in the chapters covering library services and selection, for example, present a diverse and somewhat complex area of librarianship. Adding to the usefulness and richness of the text is an extensive list of standard psychiatric publications and six appendixes, which include a directory of mental health libraries in the United States and Canada. One minor editorial complaint: the shifting use of the first and third person between chapters is frustrating as this should have been handled consistently. Other than that, this text is a useful addition to both library science and psychiatric collections. Recommended.Lorri Ann Zipperer, American Medical Assn., Chicago
Booknews
Librarians at the over 200 specialized libraries in the US and Canada that specialize in providing information on psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, developmental disabilities, mental health policy, and community mental health share their experiences for graduate students in library science, for public librarians seeking advice on collection development and on dealing with clients who have mental disabilities, and for mental health professionals and lay readers looking for such information.
