In its new fifth edition, which has been completely updated and reorganized, this one-stop overview of all technologies used in libraries today is more comprehensive and compelling than ever.

  • updated content on open source catalog systems, discovery layers, and related elements of library management systems;
  • a new section on learning management systems (LMS);
  • websites, web-based services, and free information resources;
  • improved guidance on usability;
  • new technology predictions for the future, with tips on how to stay up to date with the latest developments; and

Review:

"Technology advances at a startling rate, and this book provides a timely overview of what is taking place in libraries. Whether it's staff using ILL programs or learning about free information options, assisting a patron with setting up a digital projector, or teaching someone how to use social media, library staff are the technocentric community option for all people. This information is essential for keeping libraries vital and this should be required reading for all library staff." --American Reference Books Annual

"Useful for any library staff, at any level ... It is an excellent overview of library technology, and it is very thorough yet readable." --Journal of Hospital Librarianship

"The tips on how to stay current are particularly useful ... Highly recommended to all librarians and staff." --Public Libraries
