Required reading for a class, but I am dorky enough to love this book. Great definitions and detailed explanations. Plenty of references for getting more in-depth information should you want to be even dorkier! I am going to hold onto this one for awhile, so go get your used copy from someone else!
I am using this in my current MLIS class and it's very informative. But it's unlike any textbook I've had before. It's very dense and I would have liked questions at the end of each chapter, or something like that, so it could help me retain what I'm learning about.It would also have been helpful if it was available as an E-Book.
I bought this as a text for a grad level class. Very dense, boring, and not very clear in describing concepts. I would not buy this book.
