about this item

For library staff, this guide outlines all technologies used in libraries and how they are integrated into library processes. It details definitions, applications and uses, adoption issues, and potential problems and their solutions. It covers the history of technologies in libraries and how staff members use them; fundamental technologies like electronic resources, library catalogs, and computing devices; tools used to present services to patrons, such as websites and web services, social networking tools, screencasts, and distance learning; and building and maintaining the technology environment, including planning, evaluating, buying, and implementing technology, universal design and adaptive/assistive technologies, infrastructure, ergonomics, sustainability, security and privacy, and preservation issues. Updated and reorganized, this edition has a new section on current technologies and how they impact library work; new chapters on free information resources and makerspaces; updated information on open source catalog systems, discovery layers, and related elements of library management systems; a new section on learning management systems; new sources for tracking down technology information; and new technology predictions.
