Catalogue 2.0 certainly has its value as a snapshot of where the library catalogue is today and an exploration of where it may be headed. While sections of the book are particularly relevant to technical services and systems librarians, it is certainly worth a read for anyone interested in both a summary of recent developments in and forecast for the library catalog. It could also serve as a reading for a course on library systems, and some of the individual chapters may be appropriate for other library courses as well. (Library Resources and Technical Services)
Chambers has succeeded in editing an evocative and convincing work. Those seeking an authoritative description of this historical moment, of what Calhoun call this "era of discontinuous change", will be well served by this collection. (Technicalities)
