My review of the file will appear in the October 15, 2011 Library Journal. To give you an idea of what I thought: it earned a “transcendent 11″ on my reviewing scale.

My thanks to Ben Krasney and Mary Kay Jezzini of CQ Press for setting this trial up.

Enjoy, folks — I surely did!

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at claguard@fas.harvard.edu, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
