Librarians as Community Partners: An Outreach Handbook.

Forging innovative partnerships with communities

ALA Editions, the publishing imprint of the American Library Association, announces the release of “Librarians as Community Partners: An Outreach Handbook.” As editor Carol Smallwood states in the Preface, this volume is “a mosaic of 66 articles by 34 innovative librarians from across the United States who share their successful outreach activities with the reader. These unpublished articles (1,900–2,100 words each) by school, public, academic and special librarians and LIS faculty convey the effectiveness of outreach and the dedication, inventiveness and enthusiasm of librarians. This book was compiled for library and information studies students as well as professionals already in the field.” [ALA News for December 1, 2009]
