The contents of this book are refreshing, but the cover is dated. However, the forward is uplifting and important to read. It would be so easy to overlook these titles, but this type of reference tool allows librarians to go outside of their world and develop a balanced collection in areas they aren’t necessarily expert in. Would that there were such lists in all such areas. This book spends quite a bit of time working on convincing professionals of the need; why not spend this time and paper more on just how to meet the need? Well indexed, we liked the keyword index as well as the resource citations (both print and non print). Recommended if you need something in this area.
