About the Author:

George M. Eberhart is editor of the American Libraries Direct e-newsletter for the American Library Association. He has been with American Libraries magazine since 1996. From 1980 to 1990 he was editor of College and Research Libraries News, the news magazine of ALA s Association of College and Research Libraries. Eberhart holds an MLS from the University of Chicago and a bachelor s degree in journalism from Ohio State University.

From Booklist:

Like the four previous volumes in the Whole Library Handbook series, this update collects material from a variety of other sources and pulls it together into an interesting and fun guide, providing librarians with an eclectic combination of equal parts resources, advice, factoids, and inspiration. Much of the content comes from sources copyrighted by the American Library Association, including ALA’s guidelines, books, and American Libraries magazine. Material is divided into the same 10 broad categories as the previous editions, covering such areas as the profession, library operations, technology, and advocacy. This volume concentrates on source material from 2006 to 2012, and 98 percent of the content is new to this edition. It is almost impossible to open this work to a section that fails to be entertaining, inspiring, and instructional. The Whole Librarian Handbook 5 delivers a strong update to this series that will not disappoint readers familiar with the earlier volumes. --David Tyckoson
