"This book needs to be read in its entirety, not dipped into. Some chapters may seem more or less relevant to one's own professional context but the lessons are cumulative. The two final chapters crystallise the points made by the contributors, give a structure to the book and provide reinforcement of the messages. This is a useful and relevant addition to the study and application of leadership in our professions and a springboard for further topical debate."

--Journal of the Society of Archivists

Each author extracts learning and principles from their own experiences that might be of wider application and, together, they provide much food for thought ...I t is difficult to do justice to this 347-page text ..."
--Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology
"This book makes a significant contribution to the field of archives and records management and leadership issues ... Mr. Dearstyne has hit a home run with the content, the organization, contributors and need in the professional career marketplace.There is literally no other work that has this depth of content, expert contributors, resources and supporting reference. This work could very well become required text in the archives/ records management area."
--Library Management
"While each chapter reflects the unique tone of its author, the consistently clear prose and judicious use of charts and tables convey a great deal of pertinent information not typically found in the majority of textbooks and seminars available today."
--Journal of Archival Organization
"Useful in professional development collections and those new to the field of archives and records management."
--ARBA Online

--New England Archivists
"Leading and Managing Archives and Records Programs is a welcome addition to the archivist's and records manager's bookshelf series ... does a superb job of not only posing the tough questions, but revealing the answers within a readable and enjoyable format."
