"The second edition of this work chronicles the contribution that African American librarians have made to librarianship and to the organizations they have built to provide information resources for their people. Like in the first edition published in 1977, chapters on pioneering individuals are juxtaposed with historical descriptions of early organizations. Other sections treat the important contemporary issues of information technology, services to African Americans, and library education. Of special interest is the section on African American resources, which covers archival and fugitive literature, library holdings, oral history programs, and museums, with several chapters on awards. Other features include a completely new section on libraries, library education, and publishing in Africa and a section of information on the role of African Americans in selected areas of the knowledge industry." "Of interest to all library professionals, bibliophiles, bibliographers, and students of American culture, this handbook fills a niche in American cultural history."--Jacket
