Editorial Reviews

?No one individual is likely to be fully knowledgeable on all aspects of the work of a kind of library, or all components of a particular function. Therefore, guides like Carolyn Sheehy's Managing Performing Arts Collections in Academic and Public Libraries, which rely on a range of contributors who have taken their time to prepare essays specifically for publication, are generally the most satisfactory. In this case, Sheehy herself has done an excellent job of providing a solid historical overview and a selected annotated bibliography. This is an outstanding example of the type of guide that provides a broad overview and that is most likely to be useful to all who are engaged in any aspects of this field of librarianship.?-Wilson Library Bulletin
