  • Description
  • About the Authors

Integrating new technologies into existing library services is the key to meeting user needs. Newest in the renowned series from the Library and Information Technology Association (a division of the American Library Association), this cutting-edge guide provides practical advice, detailed examples, implementation ideas, and helpful forecasts for the future roles of four major interactive technologies. Librarians will find helpful information on: using Real Simple Syndication (RSS) for providing data based on disciplinary interests and across vendor platforms; developing Wikis as a replacement for static HTML pages to provide greater currency in subject guides — without the need for librarians to develop Web-authoring skills; implementing blog feeds to meet real needs such as library instruction for distance-education students; and employing podcasting as an alternate method for distributing digital media.
