Editorial Reviews


"A fast-reading guide for aspiring academic librarians and undecided subject specialists. Recommended especially for LIS students and recent graduates." - Library Journal

"Primarily aimed at potential and current library school students, current professionals considering pursuing a career change within or into academia will find this a useful guide as well. As a reference book that readers will refer to for specific information based on the reader's interest area(s), it is an essential resource for library school libraries, especially if the library school does not have the benefit of local expertise on the full-range of specialties offered in this book." - VOYA

"By sharing their experiences and the details of their roles as subject specialists, the contributors to Mastering Subject Specialties: Practical Advice from the Field have written a helpful guide for those in library school or those looking for a new personal direction within the profession. . . . Current library students, as well as those contemplating a move into the library profession, are the target audience for this volume, and Mastering Subject Specialties would be a natural purchase for libraries supporting MLIS students. It may also prove a useful resource for mid-career librarians who are interested in a new professional trajectory, or who have a supervisory role over subject specialists in various disciplines." - Technical Services Quarterly
