Getting the most out of the Internet
This book shows librarians the best ways to put the Web to practical
by Gwen M. Gregory
Presents a very favorable review of "The Cybrarian's Manual 2"
($45) edited by Pat Ensor, published in 2000 by the American Library
Association of Chicago, IL. Says that this 313-page paperback
edition contains almost entirely new material, along with updated
articles, and more about cultural and management concerns. Relates
that the book is divided into eight sections, including "The
Cybrarian's Tool Kit," a group of several selections to keep one
up-to-date about Internet use; and "A Network of Networks of
Networks," which covers some technical topics. Observes that one of
the refreshing things is the abundance of humor, something that is
not always in evidence in library profession literature. Recommends
this book as a great current-awareness tool for librarians who want
to quickly learn about new developments relating to Internet use.
