Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Written by library media specialists, the articles included here are from issues of The Technology Connection, Library Talk, and The Book Report magazines from over the past five years. Unlike many books addressing the issues of technology, the ideas provided here work, and may help rejuvenate the current positions and programs of even the most successful librarians. Numerous articles explore different aspects of the media specialist's role in creating, planning, building, and maintaining a successful program. Topics include guidelines for evaluating Web pages, rubrics for scoring multimedia projects, using the Internet, building influence in the school library, technology integration, copyright issues, stress, scheduling, assisting students, volunteers, etc. Even if one has read these articles in the pages of the magazine, rereading them will encourage professionals and serve as a catalyst for them to get more involved with technology in their programs.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
