Review quote

"The authors have attempted and succeeded in making the information as meaningful and current as possible. Because every aspect of collection management seems to have been adequately covered in this work, it is recommended as an up-to-date textbook for library and information science courses in both graduate and undergraduate programs as well as for training purposes within libraries." - ARBA
