Created for those with little formal LIS training working in small, rural libraries, this guide explains essentials of collection development and management, and offers an introduction to community analysis. Collection assessment and evaluation, budgets, selecting materials, reviews and reviewing sources, the publishing industry, and handling complaints about the collection are some areas explored. The guide will also be useful for librarians who are new to this area of service or who need to brush up on their skills. Disher is a public library veteran who teaches courses in collection development and library management at San Jose State University. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
