But this little and charming book shows, with some delightful photographs, taken from all over the world, how libraries and librarians are rethinking their strategies.

THE CAMBRIDGE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF STAGE ACTORS AND ACTING (Cambridge £120 ) is an invaluable history of acting in that it covers the international stage, from the classical era to the present day, providing biographical, historical and technical information on key players, directors and theorists in over 1,000 entries.
It is full of famous names and names you have never heard of. Students of theatre, professionals and serious theatre-goers, will find it particularly fascinating and useful.
