Provides a useful introduction to the myriad of possible legal issues that may arise for libraries, museums and archives... Recommended for the library science collections of public and university libraries.
— Catholic Library World
Balancing legal requirements with users' needs is the focus of this volume that covers a UW-Milwaukee sponsored conference entitled the 'Institute for Legal and Ethical Issues in the New Information Era: Challenges for Libraries, Museums, and Archives.'...While many of the chapter authors are lawyers with legal experience in the area on which they write, Libraries, Museums, and Archives is accessible and essential reading for professionals dealing with the issues.
— JOURNAL OF INTERLIBRARY LOAN, DOCUMENT DELIVERY & ELECTRONIC RESERVE
Unlike many publications resulting from a conference or symposium, this book holds together as a comprehensive collection of ideas. It is informative, interesting, and above all, very readable....Any library, museum, or archive would benefit from having Libraries, Museums, and Archives: Legal Issues and Ethical Challenges in the New Information Age on its shelves, or more importantly in the hands of the information professionals employed in these institutions. Furthermore, this volume would be an excellent addition to a course syllabus for information ethics, legal issues in the information professions, information management, museum studies, or archival practices.
— Journal of Information Ethics
No work can serve as a definitive guide to the shifting landscape of laws regulating museums, archives, and libraries, and none can substitute for an attorney's legal advice. The most one can hope for in a book like Libraries, Museums, and Archives, is that it will offer a detailed overview of the current playing field. This fine volume does that admirably.
— College & Research Libraries
Taken together, the chapters provide an excellent historical context to the legal and ethical issues discussed.
