Handbook for Media Librarians

The Winter 2010 issue of News Library News, the quarterly bulletin of the Special Libraries Association News Division, features a review of a Handbook for Media Librarians, edited by Katharine Schopflin. Through chapters written by leading practioners, the book explores the issues of central importance facing media librarians, archivists, researchers etc. Subjects include managing intranets, picture libraries and legal issues for news databases and archives.

The book came out in March 2008, so some of the information will be out of date. However, this is a good and honest review, with a recommendation that the handbook should be on the reading list of all aspiring news librarians. Read more here.
