This text is a comprehensive reference guide for professionals, patrons, and all those curious about libraries. There are ten chapters on types of libraries and general features, the people who work there and their routines, library education and librarianship as a profession, materials and collections, operations inside and between libraries, users and patrons, advocacy, technology, issues related to privacy and intellectual freedom, and assorted "librarian." Each of these chapters is full of data and encyclopedic articles on everything from user experience and interlibrary loans, to patron behavior and library education, to volunteers and security. These subsections are authored by George Eberhart, the editor, his wife, Jennifer Henderson, and other library experts. This fifth edition contains new and updated information in every section, especially taking into account the changes in social media in the last 7 years since the last edition was published.
