Review:

This is a book full of highly useful ideas for creating digital collections and exhibits in your library—yes, even your law library. It is suitable both for beginners and those who may have more advanced technology knowledge and skills. This title can be easily read front to back by a novice like myself, or it can be used as a reference by picking and choosing the chapters that pertain to your individual project. . . .Digital Collections and Exhibits is one volume in a series about library technology. After reading this volume, I am interested now in reading the others. (Law Library Journal)

I enthusiastically recommend the Library Technology Essentials series. Many libraries will want to invest in the entire set as a professional development resource since they will inevitably face some degree of involvement with each of the volume topics. Library technologists will want one of these books at their side as they launch new projects or initiatives. Ellyssa Kroski has shepherded a collection that makes an important contribution to the professional practice of library technology. (Marshall Breeding, Independent Consultant, Speaker, and Author; editor Library Technology Guide editor, Computers in Libraries columnist, and Smart Libraries Newsletter editor)
