Review:

While intended for libraries with small staffs, it encourages all to think big." --Leadership & Management Division (LMD) blog

It would be most helpful to new administrators who come to the job with very little training or experience. It will also be useful to librarians taking on new duties in unfamiliar segments of library work. Recommended." --American Reference Books Annual

"If you liked the first edition, you will like the second ... A helpful book for libraries that do not have professional staff." --Technicalities
