“With every passing minute, it becomes more and more apparent that our world is one community. The Encyclopedia of Community serves as recognition of this trend and as a needed resource. The four-volume set not only explains the emerging buzz words of community such as ‘social capital’ or ‘civic engagement’ but also tells many stories of community institutions that work, such as public libraries.” — Sarah Ann Long, Past President, (1999-2000) American Library Association

Christensen, K., & Levinson, D. (2003). Encyclopedia of community: From the village to the virtual world. Thousand Oaks, Calif: Sage Publications.

“This encyclopedia is a welcome exploration of the great variety of social networks that human beings create and participate in. Interdisciplinary in scope, the set includes contributions from some of the foremost scholars studying community today. Appendixes include an extensive bibliography, a collection of resources guides, an annotated guide to “Community in Popular Culture,” and “Libraries Build Community,” a guide for librarians.”–“The Top 20 Reference Titles of the Year,” American Libraries, May 2004.
