Review:

Intner and
Johnson connect technical
services to the library s mission,
and encourage technical
services librarians to take on
the consultative role that is
precisely theirs. Many times technical services
books focus on a single type
of library. This is not the case
here, and public library technical
services managers will
find this book useful. Although this concise volume
is also intended to be used as a textbook, its dual
purpose is to function as a practical manual for
technical services management team members,
whether new or well seasoned. In our opinion, it
accomplishes both. --TechKNOW
