Editorial Reviews

Patrick Dewey
This outstanding manual provides in-depth information for public libraries wishing to help patrons assess job and career needs and to set up an education, job, and career information center. It also provides extensive help for making an evaluation of the needs of the community and for planning the best way to meet identified needs, and it discusses various supportive strategies including collection management, levels of service, links and referrals to other organizations and community services, and career counseling. Additional sections treat finding funding, selecting and evaluating materials, marketing, and managing facility and staff, while a final section provides examples of evaluation. A list of selected providers of EJIC/Economic Development services, planning process checklists, and worksheets are appended.
