Nine authors combine their experience and expertise to discuss the realities of circulation, interlibrary loans and document delivery, and fee-based services in health sciences libraries. This long-awaited handbook will serve not only as a textbook, but also as an invaluable resource for practitioners in the field, and will be useful to information specialists in other types of libraries as well. It is organized so that the whole volume or individual chapters may be read as needed. Appendixes provide further information on "nuts and bolts" issues like automated circulation functions, shelving terminology, and shelving measurements. A glossary of terms is also included.
