"…an important addition to your library's collection, a relevant resource for undergraduate and graduate student advisors, and perhaps a gift for the new librarian who will be working with your department."
-- Mathematical Intelligencer, vol 27, no. 2
"…[H]ighly recommended for all math, science, and technology libraries at the undergraduate, graduate, and research institution level, [including] biology and life science collections … . Larger public libraries with science collections may find it useful to have this volume to identify materials for ILL retrieval or to support local math teachers."
- E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 11
"Helping mathematicians easily locate resources in any format in the mathematics literature, this reference serves as a reader-friendly guide to every basic tool and skill required in the mathematical library. … [This book] assists students in their search for interactive aids, software, tutorials, definitions, and clear samples of mathematical writing… leads mathematicians to new research, applications, results, and techniques… details convenient methods of access to primary literary sources… and describes techniques to find articles in indexes, trace literature through time, and maneuver through an abundance of Internet sources."
- Lenseignement Mathematique
"An exceptional guide to the literature…more than a finding aid, more than a list of tools and strategies for finding information…it superbly fulfills its purpose: guiding researchers unfamiliar with a subject to some recommended texts for gaining familiarity…I would recommend this book to all academic libraries."
- Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, Spring 2005
"The collection is a valuable source of information and should be available at all mathematical libraries... a tremendous work which will be appreciated by most mathematicians." - Zentralblatt MATH, 2007, 1118
