The Network Reshapes the Library
Lorcan Dempsey on Libraries, Services and NetworksBook - 2014
As one university librarian put it, Dempsey's "dual ability to explore an issue and to reveal the higher-order trends is spot-on for understanding our volatile environment." Since he began posting in 2003, Dempsey has used his blog to explore nearly every important facet of library technology, from the emergence fo Web 2.0 as a concept to open source ILS tools and the push to web-scale library management systems. In a compendium that library planners, administrators, and technology staff will find endlessly stimulating, Varnum offers an expertly curated selection of entries that show where libraries have been in the last decade and also where they're heading now.
