Practical information about space and power planning, troubleshooting, social networking, supervision, and more make this handbook an essential companion for new and veteran school librarians who want to stay current with best practices in technology management and for LIS students who are preparing for careers as school librarians.

"This book is essential for public and private schools as well as research institutions." 

--Catholic Library World
"Farmer and McPhee wrote this book to fill a perceived gap in the literature--no textbook was available that addressed the management of technology. The result is a book that covers the basics as well as more advanced ideas for technology management …This definitely belongs on school library professional shelves."
