About the Author:

Michael F. Bemis has written reference book reviews for American Reference Books Annual, Library Journal, Reference and User Services Quarterly, and other professional librarian publications. He reviews book proposals for Praeger Press and is a member of the National Book Critics Circle. He recently completed a two-year term as chair of the Materials Reviewing Committee of ALA's Reference and User Services Association (RUSA).

Review:

"Every librarian takes on new responsibilities for which no previous experience is adequate for the unfamiliar task at hand. In these situations what is often needed is a source that gives step-by-step directions with examples, templates, and outlines. Library and Information Science: A Guide to Key Literature and Sources addresses this individual need and fills this particular niche in the professional literature." -- Journal of Academic Libraries "As a research starter on a topic in librarianship, I'd say this will be useful for many, especially beginners and librarians in the field who may not have extensive access to LIS sources. For me, I'd keep it on my shelf to check on things now and then as part of keeping up or for my areas of interest. This is one I am suggesting for librarians to at least look over." --The Itinerant Librarian Blog

What Bemis has succeeded in doing is creating a book that is packed with a lot of interesting and useful information for library and information science faculty and students, as well as for working academic, public and school librarians in various stages of their careers ... a useful and worthwhile tool to keep within reach. --Reference Reviews
