Here is the practical guide, written specifically for librarians, to assist you in your implementation or expansion. In these pages you will find essential background information and get the facts about why and how libraries should go wireless, including standards, transfer rates, equipment options and costs, planning and implementation, technical and project management concerns, and site surveys. Common library issues such as compatibility with existing networks, marketing to your patrons, creating good policy, security options and troubleshooting are addressed. Throughout the book the authors share advice from real world librarians detailing their experiences with wireless. For your convenience, a wide variety of planning tools are included-checklists, cost tables, a glossary of terms and resources for further research.
