Introduction to Technical Services:

“Eight years after the last edition, Introduction to Technical Services re-emerges with two new co-authors and extensive rewriting of the text. Although still a nuts-and-bolts text geared toward providing a broad and comprehensive overview of technical services for cataloging novices, paraprofessionals, and technicians, it has expanded to encompass decision-making, staffing, and management issues. ...As a broad introduction to technical services, this textbook provides a solid primer of the tasks and processes involved.”–Technical Services Quarterly

“An excellent all-around primer, Introduction to Technical Services is an important and core addition to any Library Science collection, and highly recommended for academic, corporate, and community librarians charged with the responsibility of coping with the rapidly evolving technologies relevant to all aspects of library operations.”–Wisconsin Bookwatch
