The Ultimate Digital Library review
Licensing and fair use, ownership vs. access, privacy vs. personalized online services, open sourced vs. proprietary, homegrown vs. vended, and the adaptation of dot-com solutions (Yahoo, Google, and Amazon among others) to library systems are just a few of the timely issues discussed in this book.
This is a frank insider's view and analysis of industry trends, libraries, and technology vendors. Best practices from the public and private sector are identified and applied to the business management of libraries, the product development of library information systems, and the recruitment and retention of library staff and library students. The issues are addressed from both a customer and supplier perspective and they are applicable to anyone that uses, works for, or with a library or technology company.
An easy informative read. I highly recommend it.
