Barry's Bindery








Dr.  Gordon (Barry) Neavill, Professor of Library Science at Wayne State University has provided a lot of great information over the years in response to Modern Library Mailing List questions, comments, and discussions.  Most of that information has been interwoven throughout ModernLib in appropriate sections. Some information, however, while obviously important, doesn't seem to fit anyplace. Listed below is some of that information drawn from his many mailing list posts.  Text inside brackets, {...text...}, is relevant material from other mailing list members.  (Click here for information on joining the Modern Library Mailing List.)
