Comments for The Accidental Law Librarian
The Accidental Law Librarian: 12/16/13
Libraries take many forms and serve many different kinds of users. The typical two are public and academic. The next two are school and law.
The Accidental Law Librarian by Anthony Aycock is a handbook for librarians who find themselves working for a law library or working a reference desk that handles a high volume of law related questions.
The book is divided into different kinds of law resources with explanations of what the standard resources are, how they came to be, and how to use them. I personally haven't come across a situation where I've need to use the book yet, but I'm still very new to my library career. I can see it being a helpful resource in the future.
I received a copy for review through LibraryThing's early reader's program.
