All libraries should invest in guides to the newest version of Mac OS X. For beginners, How To Do Everything with Mac OS X Panther starts with new Panther features and OS X's differences from OS 9, before moving through using OS, getting online, using applications, working with digital media features, and troubleshooting and maintenance. In typical Mac evangelist fashion, sidebars show how users benefit from their machines, and an insert highlights several "writers and their Macs." Screen shots, sidebars, shortcuts, cautions, and notes add information; for all libraries. The less thorough Easy Mac OS X v. 10.3 Panther provides full-color screen shots and step-by-step instructions on basics from using the desktop to installing the software. Limited text and large icons make this an approachable introduction for all libraries. Learning UNIX addresses users who want to get "under the hood" of OS, clearly providing the basics of using UNIX on the Mac, why and when to do so, and suggestions for learning more; recommended for larger libraries. More comprehensive than How To Do Everything, Hands-On serves intermediate users with a teach-yourself approach. Its CD contains QuickTime video explanations and exercise files. New Panther features are highlighted, and the text supplies background information to ground its step-by-step exercises and instructions. Appendixes cover applications and utilities, online resources, and a troubleshooting guide; for medium and larger libraries. Its depth may intimidate beginners but will be useful for those seeking to learn their Macs. For intermediate to advanced users, Unleashed covers both the GUI and its UNIX underpinnings, as well as information for network administrators and a thorough discussion of maintenance and security. Cautions and notes add extra info; its comprehensiveness makes it a good choice for larger libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
