The authors, from Elon University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Toronto, offer practical advice and case studies that examine how to develop, sustain, and assess personal librarian programs. Also included are best practices for implementing or improving outreach efforts through relationship development, communications efforts, and programming. The book is available from ABC-Clio.
