>From the publisher:
In its new fifth edition, which has been completely updated and reorganized, this one-stop overview of all technologies used in libraries today is more comprehensive and compelling than ever. The perfect primer for LIS students, Burke's guide should also be at the top of the list for any current or future library professional looking to stay at the forefront of technological advancement. It gives readers a sound and sensible way to consider, access, and use library technologies to better meet the needs of library users. Its incisive coverage includes:


  *   complete analysis of the librarian's technological toolbox for teaching, security, databases, and more;
  *   expert advice on how to compare and evaluate competing technology solutions;
  *   mobile devices and technology, social media, streaming media, and privacy;
  *   makerspaces and other technology programing;
  *   updated content on open source catalog systems, discovery layers, and related elements of library management systems;
  *   a new section on learning management systems (LMS);
  *   websites, web-based services, and free information resources;
  *   improved guidance on usability;
  *   new technology predictions for the future, with tips on how to stay up to date with the latest developments; and
  *   a glossary of useful terms.

Informed by a large-scale survey of librarians across the spectrum of institution types, this guide will be a true technology companion to novices and seasoned LIS professionals alike.


If you would like to request this or other materials from the Oregon State Library please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form).  Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-serve basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks.

Most library staff are able to use their library's interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me<mailto:arlene.weible at state.or.us> to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.
