The whole library handbook 4 : current data, professional advice, and curiosa about libraries and library services by George M Eberhart( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in its fourth version, The Whole Library Handbook is a one-volume encyclopedia of library history, demographics, folklore, humor, current events, and popular wisdom. The new volume is organized in easy-to-find general categories, including types of libraries, the profession, people, materials, special users, operations, technology, promotion, issues, and librariana. Readers will find fascinating bits of trivia, as well as humorous sections on ''how many academic librarians does it take to change a lightbulb?'' and ''advice from naughty library assistants.'' Also included are thoughtful essays and reprints of important journal articles by noted experts. The Whole Library Handbook 4 provides a range of current facts and serious and not-so-serious discussions on subjects including: a) 20th-century library movements in a nutshell; b) fundamentals of good press releases; c) more silly and illogical reasons to ban a book; d) why people challenge library materials; e) a glossary of blogging terms; and f) the earliest printed books in selected languages. -- Back cover

This third edition contains what I consider to be the most relevant, informative, and digestible nuggets from the literature of librarianship. About 95% of WLH3 is completely new or substantially revised, and the book is a solid 48 pages thicker than the last one. In WLH3 you will discover such new features as the oldest and largest national libraries, secrets of the Freedom of Information Act, the protohistory of information retrieval, how to provide library service to the poor, how to cultivate donors, how to repair compact discs, how to be an ethical archivist, and plentiful facts on library cats, library postcards, and library ghosts
