"Art and design librarians have unique needs and this collected work is a platform for showcasing the most important of those needs in a browsing format that librarians will find helpful at their points of need. It is an excellent source for library school students who are weighing their options for the types of libraries in which they wish to work, newly hired art librarians developing professionally, and established professionals needing to add to their knowledge base or reassess current practices." --The Journal of Academic Librarianship, March 2011
