Reviews and Testimonials
Authored by a doctoral candidate with the Department of Education Policy Studies at the University of Alberta, this volume brings together 11 chapters on the role of librarians in the wake of rapidly changing technology. Presented as a single unit, without sections, this work addresses through case studies and practical experiences the challenges faced by librarians as technology changes the way society wants and retrieves information. 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.
