"Would I recommend this text? Yes, because of its stimulating approach, common sense and good examples. The sources listed will certainly provide a good platform for further enquiry and the ideas for development will greatly assist a newly-fledged professional. I would also recommend it to more seasoned practitioners as a means of reviving interest or for getting back into the profession after some time away...Bethan Ruddock is to be congratulated on a fine piece of work that should continue to have influence for a long period."
- Journal of Librarianship and Information Science
