For those tired of techno-hotshots running virtual circles around them in cyberspace comes this practical crash course primer, a book that offers skill-building concepts and instructions specifically for library newbies.

Written by the founding editor of the popular Internet Homesteader, once a print journal and now available on the World Wide Web, Basic Internet for Busy Librarians is the perfect catch-up for the late starter.

Tapping into her experience teaching Internet skills to librarians and library school students, author Laura K. Murray guides readers through modular tutorials that address specific library tasks and protocols.

This readily accessible reference and training tool is designed for Internet novices in libraries of all types and sizes. After three or four hours with the chapter on HTML, for example, a children's librarian new to the Internet can compose a department page for the library Web site.

This impeccable Internet authority helps bridge the gap between netizens and newbies. With Basic Internet for Busy Librarians, it won't take long for cyber-novices to be up to speed.
