Product description

Review

"A useful guide...Would serve as a good teaching tool, as a practical introduction to the topic for library workers, and as a source of suggestions on where to look next for information about a piece of unfamiliar technology." --The Australian Library Journal, February 2008

"Written for the novice but also including updated information for the expert, this edition provides a one-stop overview...a valuable reference manual for practicing librarians and textbook for a library school course. The work addresses all aspects of librarianship and technology - teaching, security, databases, social networking and more." --Booklist, January 2010


"A readable and easy-to-understand introduction and guide. It is a valuable start for the digital immigrant." --J Med Libr Assoc 98(3), July 2010

"An 'everything you always wanted to know and more' guide to technology for librarians... the true strength of this guide is making technology and its rather arcane jargon understandable and usable to the novice or inexperienced user...The handbook's value and versatility is increased as it could also be used as a supplemental text to teaching the technological aspects of information literacy as each chapter includes "Questions For Review." --Catholic Library World, March 2010

"…a one-stop overview of all technologies used in libraries today… not only a valuable reference manual for a practicing librarian but also a potential textbook for a library school course." --ARBA Online, March 2010

"...is valuable as a source for personal information and for planning inservice." --Teacher-Librarian, February 2010

"This introductory work provides clear, detailed, and suitably contextualized discussion of libraries and technology, chapter review questions, and ample sources for further reading…a fine introduction to the myriad technologies in libraries…This title is recommended for staff of all library types who would like to possess a more holistic view of how technologies and services intersect within the library, and who possess novice to intermediate technical skills." --Partnership, 2011
