By Nicole C. Engard With Rachel Singer Gordon
Publication Date: October, 2012

"The focus on open source software and the importance of networking for systems librarians are powerful additions to this new edition of The Accidental Systems Librarian ... Very well done. ... an instant classic that every systems librarian will want."

—Edward Iglesias, author,
An Overview of the Changing Role of the Systems Librarian

This new edition of The Accidental Systems Librarian prepares readers to manage the latest library technologies: mobile devices, open source software, social networks, WiFi, ebooks, and much more.

Nicole C. Engard's advice on using research, communication, organizational, and bibliographic skills to solve various systems problems is geared to helping both "accidental" and "planned" systems librarians develop the skills they need to succeed and the confidence they need to excel.

"A great resource for those of us in this role by accident or choice. If you need new ideas on how to manage and master new technologies, acquire new skill sets, and use life lessons to solve problems and achieve career goals, this is the book for you."

—Cheryl Ann Peltier-Davis, archives & digital librarian,
NSU Archives, Nova Southeastern University (Florida)

"Nicole C. Engard has written a well-rounded introduction to the trials, tribulations, treasures, and treats of systems librarianship. With this guide in hand, accidental (and new) systems librarians will be prepared to handle almost anything the job throws at them."

—Ruth Kneale, intentional systems librarian
and author, You Don't Look Like a Librarian

"A practical and perceptive guide ... I recommend it to anyone considering or already involved in this corner of the profession."

—Marshall Breeding, Library Technology Guides
