    Book summary:

    Explore ways to bring and keep your librarys electronic services up to date!

    From editor Di Su: Some years ago, if you were told that a librarys catalog would be available on a 24/7/365 basis, youd think it was just another fiction. Perhaps as influential as Johannes Gutenbergs invention of movable type printing, the Internet is one of the most significant happenings in the information world in modern times.

    In addition to showing you how library services have been influenced and enhanced by the advent of the Internet, Evolution in Reference and Information Services: The Impact of the Internet will enable you to make the most of the new opportunities that current technologies offer. This valuable book will also help you and your library avoid the pitfalls and new challenges to professional competency that come along with electronic research.

    Evolution in Reference and Information Services:

    • gives you a review of the history of electronic reference
    • looks at the increasing role of librarians as teachers and providers of technical help for users
    • provides case studies and ways to evaluate electronic research methods
    • suggests strategies for providing effective electronic services
    • examines government Web sites
    • explores Internet sources of health information
    • shows you how to establish electronic services through your librarys portal site
    • looks at how to manage a library computer lab and much more!
