"The accomplishments of the Mann Library staff in the digital arena are numerous and far-reaching in their impact….

"…This book is an outstanding example of Mann Library's teamwork….Reading the various chapters is sure to benefit those seeking advice on the digital library highway, but in a broader sense, this book is vital for anyone seeking to build a healthy, vibrant, and successful organization."

Sarah Thomas, Carl A. Kroch University Librarian, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, U.S.A.
