Organizing Exhibitions by Freda Matassa (http://www.facetpublishing.co.uk/title.php?id=9450) is the first book to provide librarians, archivists and museum staff with practical guidance to creating and organizing successful exhibitions. Drawing on international museum practice but applicable to any exhibition or display, the book sets out a time-line from the initial idea to the final legacy. Backed up by advice and guidance and with a list of resources for those who need in-depth information such as international laws and standards applying to museum loans, it has up-to-date information on new developments such as flexibility in environmental conditions and sustainability and lists the top ten tips for exhibition success and the ten biggest mistakes.

A core resource for any LIS student or academic liaison librarian, Fundamentals for the Academic Liaison (http://www.facetpublishing.co.uk/title.php?id=0051) lays out the comprehensive fundamentals of the discipline, helping librarians build the confidence and cooperation of the university faculty in relation to the library. Readers will learn about connecting and assisting faculty and students through skilful communication and resource utilization with coverage of key topics including: acquiring subject specialization, collection development, embedded librarianship, library guides, information literacy instruction and much more.

Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management, Third Edition, (http://www.facetpublishing.co.uk/title.php?id=9375) is a sweeping revision of the authorative standard collection development and management textbook. Each chapter offers complete coverage of one aspect of collection development and management, including numerous suggestions for further reading and narrative case studies exploring the issues.
