Review:

"Different groups of readers will use the book in different ways. The comprehensiveness of its content may help new instructors to define the scope of a course on reference services, clarify the content of the course sections and design assignments. Library school students will benefit from reading the book cover-to-cover, and the most diligent of them will remember it as an important component of their education. Library practitioners are most likely to see the publication of a new edition as evidence of the continuing importance of reference services and, depending on their experience, will appreciate the concrete sections on answering reference questions, the discussion of reference practices in the technological context and some of the philosophical issues related to the reference librarian's work. The book is an irreplaceable source that can be recommended as an essential item for any library's professional collection." -- Collection Building
