Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This practical reference provides timely, appropriate guidance on how and why libraries should go wireless. The authors present data and ideas on standards, transfer rates, equipment costs and options, planning and implementation, technical and project--management concerns, and site surveys. Common issues such as marketing, compatibility with existing networks, privacy and security options, and troubleshooting and maintenance are also covered. A "Sources" section includes a glossary; a bibliography of books, journals, Web sites, and e-mail lists; sample policies and FAQs; a list of wireless equipment manufacturers; and "Highlights of the Maricopa County (AZ) Library District Site Survey" to use as an example. Readers will learn a great deal about wireless issues from the real-life experiences shared throughout the book. Susan Awe

I would not hesitate to recommend it to its target audience, so if you are a librarian who is going to be getting involved with wireless networking in any way, this book is for you. --Program, Volume 41 issue 4, 2007

Louise E. Alcorn and Maryellen Mott Allen walk you through the process... --American Libraries

Anyone in a small library of any kind considering the installation of a wireless network would be well advised to get this title as a part of the project cost. It will soon be marked up and dog-eared, and the networking project a success. --Catholic Library World, December 2006
