The Librarian's Internet Survival Guide,
Strategies for the High-Tech Reference
By Irene E. McDermott
Edited by Barbara Quint; Foreword by Joseph Janes
“... engaging, entertaining, and fun
... an indispensable and wonderful reference tool.”
In this updated and expanded second edition of her popular guidebook, Searcher columnist Irene McDermott once again exhorts her fellow reference librarians
to don their pith helmets and follow her fearlessly into the Web jungle.
She presents new and improved troubleshooting tips and advice, Web resources
for answering reference questions, and strategies for managing information
and keeping current. In addition to helping librarians make the most of Web
tools and resources, the book offers practical advice on privacy and child
safety, assisting patrons with special needs, Internet training, building
library Web pages, and much more.
