Abstract: In the digital age, many libraries face an increasingly diverse user population. Library Administrators have to address increasing enrollment, budgetary needs or restrictions, as wellas provide useful accommodations for users with disabilities. Kowalsky and Woodruff introduce strategies to assist library staff in meeting the needs of all library patrons. Essentially, the book illustrates means by which public and academic libraries can serve all users effectively.
