The Connected Library: A handbook for engaging users
Suzette Boyd
Utopia Press
Book
http://www.theconnectedlibrary.com.au/

Price reduced by 50% - no longer A$60.00 (Special offer: end of print run A$30.00)
In recent times librarians in schools
have come to be considered
technology experts, curriculum leaders, literature gurus, web
masters and providers of on-line information and professional development. They are also expected to be human dynamos, with energy to burn, to have a huge capacity to absorb new information, to have the imagination to deliver exciting new programs, whilst at the same time having the ability to maintain an efficient and relevant library service. Suzette Boyd believes this is probably still not enough and that the level of engagement with users is the real measure of success!
