The book highlights new methods involved in data management, library information education, research, and communication. Topics covered include: Internet communities, modern library technologies, professional identity, Web 2.0 applications, and core values and ethical standards. The focus of the work is positive the goal being to help librarians find new ways to remain current and relevant in this ever-changing society. --Sara Marcus, American Reference Books Annual
