Format: Paperback
This book contains a wealth of information on libraries and librarianship! It is an amazing resource for the librarian, containing information on everything from staff development to useful addresses to discussions on library issues. It is especially helpful to the student in a Library Science program; it is answering questions I didn't even know I had! A helpful (and fun) read.

Format: Paperback
The title, "The Whole Library Handbook," is suitable, for this book covers it all in short, easy-to-read sections. It provides a brief overview of the practical aspects of librarianship: an example of a MARC record, job-hunting tips, issues in librarianship, available scholarships/grants, basic preservation tips, underserved populations, etc. It is actually an enjoyable read. If you're assigned this text for an MLS class, consider yourself lucky.

Format: Paperback
Whether you're a seasoned librarian, a student, or just a lover of libraries, this book is for you. It is written by many, many different authors who had the best and most practical advice and stories in small, digestable articles. This is a book I will keep and use for the rest of my career.
