Whatever the reaction, readers of this informative manual will be challenged to use effectively a resource often taken for granted. Experienced in working with volunteers, the authors avoid depicting volunteerism as a miraculous solution for libraries' ills. Instead, they acknowledge the negatives, then methodically outline a program designed to addresss these concerns before they occur. Topics include recruitment, placement, training, evaluation, and recognition. Sample forms illustrate recommendations. Also helpful are detailed checklists and action steps that summarize textual information. The authors' enthusiasm for volunteerism is contagious. It will encourage those considering a volunteer program to start one and perhaps infuse established programs with fresh ideas and energy. Highly recommended for all professional reading collections.
