Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book would be well worth acquiring, particularly to establish a range of options for progress within library and information work. It would be a valuable addition to any specialist collection on those subjects. The editors are to be congratulated on their compilation of what seems to become a standard work in the field of library-related information technology.'
