Wikis and podcasts and mashups, oh my! Does everyone seem to know what they mean, except you? Or are you reasonably well informed but wondering what challenge to take on next? Following on the success of her Technology for the Rest of Us, Nancy Courtney has assembled some of the most forward looking thinkers in the library world to describe the next generation of online tools. Beginning with Steven J. Bell, each contributor introduces his or her favorite technology, outlines its use and discusses its potential in today's library environment.
