On Order



Essential facts, advice, lists, documents, guidelines, lore, wit, and wisdom: Along with fun and irreverence, it's what readers have come to expect from the Whole Library series. This latest entry zooms in on the cutting edge -- the digital library. In a one-volume compendium that's by turns encyclopedic, useful, and engaging, contributors provide an overview of digital libraries, covering the state of information, issues, customers, challenges, tools and technology, preservation, and the future.

From blogs to Wikis, highlights include:

Digitization project planning tips and tools 13 ways of looking at digital preservation Gary Price's 8 tips to make change The value proposition of the digital library Lists of Internet libraries, libraries that I.M., libraries that podcast Interpretations of NextGen demographic data Prominent librarians' perspectives on Amazoogle

Collecting insights from library luminaries as well the perspectives of interesting experts from outside the ranks of library professionals, The Whole Digital Library Handbook decodes the jargon and cuts to the chase. Digital libraries are all about access to information, and this is the one-volume resource that puts it all in perspective.

Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

This volume is a compendium similar to ALA's Whole Library Handbook (4th ed., 2006) except that it focuses on digital libraries. Part 1 defines the digital library, e-reference, and the digital library federation. Additional parts cover users, tools, operations, and more. Besides librarians, other experts and commentators on the various technologies present their views on topics ranging from Google's digital book project, to interpretations of NextGen demographic data, to digital preservation. The assembled facts, lore, wit and wisdom, guidelines, documents, and advice should engender raucous discussions and debates and raise more questions than they answer. All articles included are excerpted, with full texts available elsewhere as indicated in the citations.--Awe, Susan Copyright 2007 Booklist
