"...the Librarianship book by Chowdhury et al is excellent...It's an incredibly well-rounded introduction to the discipline and is very helpful in providing the broad overview that our students really appreciate as they begin to get to grips with the discipline. I'm now recommending it as the only preferred text when applicants for the course ask about readings before embarking on their studies."
Peter Reid (Robert Gordon University)
"This well produced introduction from the reputable publishing arm of CILIP, written by four experienced and authoritative LIS professionals nicely fills a large gap in the professional literature and will be welcomed by LIS students in particular…All in all, a valuable, timely and well produced book, with good references, glossary and Index. It will prove a boon to both LIS students and practitioners and is to be welcomed as a strong asset to the professional literature."
New Library World
"This volume splendidly achieves its aim of being a useful supporting text for any course teaching librarians and other information professionals."
