"Social Work Connections" and "Career Connection" sidebars are part of an update that elaborates on new trends, provides new readings, and offers a great deal of practical (and sometimes humorous) advice about working in library public services.

The ninth edition of Library Programs and Services: The Fundamentals builds on the strong foundation of the previous editions. Award-winning and widely published author G. Edward Evans returns with a new co-author, Stacey Greenwell, in this update that combines their signature style of textbook readability, informality, and sometimes humor, as well as their knack for balancing foundational topics and new trends.

A new feature in the ninth edition is the incorporation of the concept of “library social work” through “Social Work Connections” sidebars in each chapter. Anecdotes throughout the text and “Career Connection” sidebars offer practical advice and specific current examples. Greenwell and Evans have combined several chapters from the previous edition and expanded discussions of new trends while retaining and updating the fundamentals. The ninth edition is a welcome update for library and information science courses and a valuable handbook for public services librarians.


  • The ninth edition includes updates throughout, anecdotes, career tips, and references to "library social work" in each chapter
