During the past 50 years, the study of "international librarianship"―global, universal, or comparative―has increasingly become an essential element in understanding the importance of information and knowledge in the global setting. Over this period of time, many attempts have been made to evaluate the similarities and differences in information structures, staffing, and services in various areas of the world with the ultimate intention of providing timely and accurate information to seekers in the greater international arena.

International Librarianship: A Basic Guide to Global Knowledge Access identifies basic background sources, in whatever format, for the study and teaching of international librarianship. The most important ones relate to:

· Establishing a professional association, so that issues relating to information access can be discussed and resolved at the national and international level
· Identifying international philanthropic agencies, which can facilitate development of international information services
· The Importance of national libraries and bibliographic services, which are responsible for some coordination and cooperation in sharing national information
· Developing information policies on both the national and international front

Renowned author and specialist on international librarianship, Robert D. Stueart, concludes the guide with a listing of sources for the discussion and development of information policies, including proposals put forth in the World Summit on the Information Society.

Review:

a very useful guide to access the information on international librarianship...well-prepared reference book...a good addition to all reference collections... (American Reference Books Annual, March 2008)

Stueart has excelled in assembling an amazing amount of basic information...an important reference resource... (College & Research Libraries, July 2007, Vol. 68, No. 4)

Robert D. Stueart...does a great job of pulling the information into a logical and orderly manner....This book is recommended for all college[s] and universities with library and information science programs. (Public Services Quarterly)

A very useful identification and aggregation of resources....The directory performs a useful role in bringing together this information is a convenient format....A worthwhile resource....An inexpensive addition to any LIS collection. ("American Reference Books Annual", July 2008)

Blends practical and concrete information with more theoretical explorations of the subject matter....very readable...an excellent addition to a class on international librarianship. (Public Libraries, January/ February 2009)

Libraries, whether ancient or modern, have led the charge toward sharing information across space and time. The recent boom in information technology is just the sound of the rest of the world catching up. Stueart, longtime practitioner and global advocate, provides here a basic guide for those committed to exploring universal librarianship, including students and academics. He describes the rapid growth of the discipline and the progress accomplished by library associations and networks of library and information organizations, national library associations working on issues of universal librarianship, relevant governmental and non-governmental organizations (such as philanthropies and research institutes) and foundations, national libraries and bibliographic services, and information policies that address the sharing of information across borders. Stueart includes every nation and organizational imaginable here, and gives each its due. (Reference and Research Book News, August 2007)
