Lukenbill's work provides a vital service to our society by demonstrating how the library can act as a significant information agent in meeting the demands for HIV-AIDS material. The author discusses cooperative approaches that libraries can undertake with other organizations and offers a variety of practical models for HIV-AIDS services and programs in the library. In addition, he presents an agenda for dealing with the HIV-AIDS information needs of youth; outlines ways of helping and supporting clients who are personally associated with the HIV disease; and considers aspects of management and planning, such as staff training, in executing the program. The philosophy of commitment and concern coupled with practical information makes this work an essential addition to the professional collection.
