This book is a selection from papers presented at a Library of Congress symposium held in October 2000 and copublished as The journal of Library Administration, Volume 38, Numbers? and? 2003. It purports to examine challenges faced in preserving and safeguardinglibrary resources and indeed it does, but the focus is very much on larger academic and research libraries in America. However, this does not necessarily mean that much of the content could not be adapted to smaller libraries within an African environment. The only part of the book that seems quite outside the South African frame of reference are those sections which deal with actual figures for endowments and funding!
