Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smallwood (editor, Thinking Outside the Book) presents 92 new pieces by 47 published librarians. The book is divided into five parts, beginning with articles on why librarians should write, followed by the education of a writer—getting started, writing with others, revision, and lessons from publishers. The third part focuses on finding your niche in print—books, newsletters and newspapers, reviewing, magazines and professional journals, essays, textbook writing, children's literature, and writing on specific subjects. Next come pieces on finding your niche online, while the fifth part is about maximizing opportunities. The table of contents and index make up for the lack of article-specific running heads and the fact that articles don't always start on a new page. VERDICT This book's wide range of topics ensures that any librarian can find at least one article geared toward her/his particular needs. While anyone seeking tenure or publishing ideas and advice could find help here, it is aimed at librarians and is a resource they can turn to again and again.—Sara Rofofsky Marcus, Queensborough Community Coll. Lib., Bayside, NY
