New Top Technologies Every Librarian Needs to Know by Kenneth J. Varnum
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book brings together many technologies being used in libraries, some of these have been around for a while, but sometimes with little implementation in libraries. Each chapter provides a solid basic introduction to a technology or a tool for example linked open data, data visualisation or digital publishing. There is usually a description of how the technology is used in a library as well as how it could be used in a library. There are helpful further references at the end of each chapter. This is a book to dip into, and come back to as it is episodic in style.
I read this as an ebook on the Indyreads platform which is provided by my workplace.
