Review quote

Praise for the Series "Through the years this series has proven an important barometer of the profession--its concerns and values. The challenge, therefore, is for subsequent volumes to live up to expectations. In this case, these expectations have been met... The essays are all well written, scholarly, and very readable, without the unevenness often found in this type of work... Extensive bibliographies conclude each section and provide readers with excellent citations for furthering their reading. This work should appeal to librarians in libraries at many different professional levels. It is a credit to the continuing series." --Marjorie Bloss in AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL
