Nine authors combine their experience and expertise to discuss the realities of circulation, interlibrary loans and document delivery, and fee-based services in health sciences libraries.

This long-awaited handbook will serve not only as a textbook, but also as an invaluable resource for practitioners in the field, and will be useful to information specialists in other types of libraries as well. It is organized so that the whole volume or individual chapters may be read as needed. Appendixes provide further information on "nuts and bolts" issues like automated circulation functions, shelving terminology, and shelving measurements. A glossary of terms is also included.

About the Author:

Carolyn E. Lipscomb is a consultant in Durham, N.C. In nearly twenty years at the Health Sciences Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she held a variety of positions, including Head of Circulation/Interlibrary Loan Services.

Review:

The material on managing a circulation department gives practical advice on implementing an automated system, selecting a photocopier, and more. (Lisca)

The book is clearly written, well organized, and contains excellent chapter bibliographies. It is a valuable source of information on access and delivery, whether used in its entirety or as a reference tool for specific issues. (Journal Of Interlibrary Loan)

The volume combines practical experience with some useful theoretical discussion...a useful, authoritative insight into American public library planning... (Australian Library Journal)

The authors have succeeded in presenting current practice in a rapidly changing field, while describing future trends and discussing the many issues to be addressed as changes occur. The result is a practical guide for students and practitioners alike. (Journal of the Medical Library Association)
