I agree with the previous reviewer who stated that is it best to read this manual in pieces rather than all at once. It is not the most user-friendly manual and it does try to accomplish too much, I think. Be prepared to be overwhelmed with information! The summaries at the end of each chapter are pretty much useless, also.
As advertised, a basic introduction to technical services. This book wasn't very forward-looking at all but it did serve as a good CliffNotes version of the history of library acquisitions and cataloging operations.
Slightly boring but has quite a bit of information for anyone who wants to be a librarian. Of course, this was definitely not my choice of book...
Its fantastic for putting you to sleep. Textbook for my technical services course for Library Technician Certificate
Read this if it's a requirement, or you just can't get enough of library technical services
Dry as a cracker; typical textbook fare. But informative and necessary! :)
