Some 20 of today's top library leaders, bloggers, and futurists, including Stephen Abram, Steven J. Bell, Tom Peters, and Jessamyn West, discuss a range of emerging, mostly web-related phenomena that promise to help libraries move away from the old view of patrons as static consumers of library services by getting more involved in the trends and using technologies embraced by patrons (e.g., "Library 2.0"). Edited by Gordon, consulting editor for Information Today Inc., author of The NextGen Librarian's Survival Guide, and LJ's online Computer Media columnist, this volume covers an eclectic range of topics-from the consideration of common library issues (e.g., privacy) as seen through the lens of modern technological advances to discussions of current and near-future technologies and their potential impact on libraries. With something here for everyone, this is recommended for academic and public librarians alike.
