Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The selected best posts of 2001 from the now twenty-year-old, fifteen thousand member-strong LM_NET listserv for school librarians are presented here in nineteen topical categories spread among five chapters, "Reading and Literature," "Curriculum and Instruction," "Information Management," "Computerized Reading Programs," and "Technology." The actual posts are reprinted unedited, thus saving the flavor of the actual listserv, and often readers will need to follow up on lists of URLs or titles mentioned to get the full benefit of what they are receiving. Although many posts are short and almost cryptically to the point, others go on for several pages, such as one post on teaching students how to use an encyclopedia. Queries and answers are practical-how to catalogue graphic novels, whether to interfile different types of media, rules for using computers in the media center, whether students are allowed to reshelve books, how to cope with Accelerated Reader's effects on the media center, or using a pathfinder to construct a pathfinder. Because LM_NET is so well-used and successful, the numerous postings are frequently unwieldy, overwhelming users and their e-mail boxes, but this book, with its overlay of organization and well-selected posts, is a veritable gold mine of practical information for school librarians and also for public librarians who have realized that information literacy instruction is now every librarian's job. CD-ROM. 2002, Linworth, 208p, Chelton
