Description: From School Library Journal
Thirteen chapters range from historical descriptions to depictions of the current library landscape. The human dimension of collection management, policies, selection, acquisition, evaluation, and funding management are also examined. Of high interest is the chapter entitled "Collection Management Dilemmas in the Digital Age." Phyllis Van Orden's words on weeding (in the chapter on maintaining collection viability) will provide comic relief. The text is clear and well organized with excellent use of headings, bullets, and charts. An extensive bibliography, a useful index, and sample policies are included. This book would well serve any school library management course and should be consulted by those of us "in the trenches" who need material to back policy proposals, funding requests, or grant writing. For those who don't need a lot of theory, but prefer a "nuts and bolts" approach, try Karen R. Lowe's Resource Alignment: Providing Curriculum Support in the School Library Media Center (Beacon Consulting, 2001).-Cindy Darling Codell, Clark Middle School, Winchester, KY
