Editorial Reviews

Review

"The chapters are well written and give enough information to help librarians brainstorm what could be the next big thing for their libraries ... Another important aspect of this book is that it briefly discusses theories and concepts such as technological convergence and augmented reality that influence the adoption of a particular emerging technology. These concepts help stimulate strategic thinking on which technology is suitable for a particular library considering the user needs and availability of technical skills among the librarians." -- ARBA --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
