Bucher, Katherine Toth
Technology is arriving in school libraries in unprecedented quantities, resulting in many changes in the school library media center. While most librarians agree that technology is wonderful, many are feeling the stress of rapid change and coping with the decisions made by educational policy makers. This looseleaf notebook, written for the novice, contains practical and easy-to-locate information to make the school library media specialist comfortable with technology. Material is organized into the following sections: (1) "Working with Instructional Technology in the 1990s"; (2) "Computer Basics"; (3) "Library Management with a Computer"; (4) "Multimedia CD-ROM"; (5) "Videodiscs in the Library"; (6) "Local Area Networks"; (7) "Computer Telecommunications in the Library"; (8)"Video and Computers"; (9) "Television and Distance Learning"; and (10) "Multimedia Presentation Systems and Hypermedia." A glossary is included, along with a list of 36 resources. (SLD)
