This manual and the accompanying CD-ROM provide how-to information for adding 24 ready-made forms and surveys to a library's Web site. The audience for this publication includes people who have some experience in designing and implementing Web sites and have a working knowledge of HTML and Perl script. However, the authors do a commendable job of providing brief, clear background material on HTML, forms, tags, and Perl script for novices. A few of the forms/surveys included are: "Training Interests Survey," "Reserve a Library Computer form," "How to Evaluate a Web Site form," and "Get Help with Your Homework form." The information on the CD can be downloaded onto a computer's desktop, edited, and uploaded to a server. Clear directions for using the CD are included. The basic illustrations of the surveys and forms are in black and white, and the language is precise and direct. Overall, this well-organized text is a handy tool for all busy librarians who are interested in developing Web sites.

The third volume in the NetGuide series includes a manual and CD-ROM set featuring 24 online Web forms and surveys including HTML format and the matching PERL script. The forms are ready to be used as is, or they can be customized. As indicated in the introduction, the authors are assuming that the user is involved with creating and maintaining a Web site and that he or she has a working knowledge of HTML. According to the "Terms of Agreement," the purchaser is entitled to upload to one institution's Web server the files contained on the CD-ROM. The topics of the forms and surveys include library instruction, reference, computers, Web sites, circulation, collection development, and more. The directions are clear and concise, and this set would be useful for institutions wanting to upgrade their Web sites but that perhaps lack the time or knowledge to create forms from scratch.
