Well written

by jakeparis (WorldCat user published 2012-09-12) Very Good Permalink

This book provided a useful overview of the fields of Library and Information Science. It was well written, which is not a given with textbooks. A lot of data, perhaps too much at times, but it will probably find a second life as a reference work in my studes.
