This is exactly what it says, a bibliography. It is annotated and i found it useful. My copy has many notes of other books published since--probably not of much interest outside the profession. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078640499X, Paperback)

The depictions of librarians in 374 novels, short stories, and plays in English are the focus of this fully annotated reference work. Librarians, no less than others, want to read about themselves and know how they are thought of. The stereotypical or fictional librarian-the one with the bun, comfortable shoes, and dour demeanor-may be fading, but fiction teaches a lesson about public perception: Actually, librarians in stories are often described as adaptable, knowledgeable, shrewd, tactful, tender and intelligent. All entries include complete bibliographic data, followed by a lengthy annotation that discusses how the librarian fits into the story and gives insight to how he or she is depicted. Title and author indexes are provided for further utility.
