Library Journal Review

As one contributor to this work aptly points out, in the early 1990s librarians were both "learners and teachers [of the Internet] simultaneously," and the Internet was "both a subject to be taught and an instructional medium to be used." This volume addresses these two dilemmas. The result of a project by the New York chapter of ACRL, it includes over 20 papers written by academic librarians and library school educators in the New York metropolitan area. Primarily case studies and essays describing personal experiences, the papers discuss the processes by which librarians learned and taught the Internet and the effects of the net on workflow and library service. By portraying the ways that librarians adapted to and adopted the Internet, this book documents a critical period in the recent history of the profession and also provides valuable insight into the ways adults learn new technologies. For library science and adult education collections.√ĄJanet Crum, Oregon Health Sciences Univ. Lib., Portland (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
