Description: From Booklist
This volume provides an overview of the history of library information systems, underlying technologies, design and types of systems, standards, the implementation process, management, and a few predictions. Chapter 8, "Basic Technology Axioms," is both a good teaching platform and a reminder to those who long for the "good old days" that the potentially "good new days" are here to stay. The glossary and definitions throughout the work provide a good core for learning to speak modern "libraryese." Many chapters have suggested bibliographies of Web and print resources. Although this is an introduction, the section on Requests for Proposals (RFPs) merits fuller discussion because this is one of the most crucial parts of the process. RBB
