If you want to get an independent opinion on the latest Chantry Subject Bibliography on Integrated Pest Management by Amy Crossman and David Pinniger, beyond our own earlier blog post, then a solution is at hand.
The latest issue of Icon News (89, August 2020) contains a review of the bibliography contributed by Catherine Harris, Assistant Preventive Conservator at the Bodleian Libraries. This number of the magazine can be found here and the review itself it on pages 26 and 27.
Illustrated by an up-close-and-personal microscope image of an Anthrenus, Catherine in the review describes the IPM Subject Bibliography as “an excellently written curated bibliography, clearly presented and with a logical and user-friendly flow” that “will prove to be an extremely useful tool to heritage professionals of all disciplines” – whether beginners in the field or more experienced practitioners.
So don’t just take our word for it. And appreciative thanks to Catherine for the nice write up!
(Seemed slightly appropriate – though it doesn’t count as a “pest” – that this not so little visitor to the Library was climbing down the wall as this post was being drafted, perhaps looking on benignly.)
