While still providing librarians with cyberspace toolkit information so that the technology can be cutting edge rather than bleeding edge, the Director of Library Services at the U. of Houston revamps the 1997 manual with 35 papers venturing beyond the purely technical to examine some embedded social and management issues. "On the lighter side...and a small child shall lead them" balances discussions of such topics as Internet networks, web-based markup languages, cyber-citing, and security issues. Includes a list of spelled-out acronyms and initialisms. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Editorial Reviews

This is an intelligent gathering of 35 articles on timely topics, contributed by a variety of writers who are all librarians. It is an overview of libraries and cyberspace: technical, social, and management issues and is an update of the 1997 manual. The appropriate audience ranges from the novice to the advanced cybrarian. Many sources of information for more extensive research are embedded within each article. A sampling of the issues covered includes: security, e-journals, citing electronic resources, Internet training, copyright, and image. Each contributor's qualifications and e-mail address are included at the beginning of the article, which is usually 5-10 pages long. Although pricey, this volume may be just the ticket for the busy professional who is unable to keep up with cutting-edge issues and wants a thoughtful, organized collection of articles by experts. 2000, ALA, 313p, 26cm, 99-044215, $45.00; ALA members, $40.50. Ages Adult. Reviewer: Rita M. Fontinha; Lib. Media Spec., Norwood H.S., Norwood, MA, September 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 5)
