Even if you are the type of librarian who snickers (or cringes) at the term "cybrarian," you will find this book useful. Despite the fatuous phrase, this is not a fanciful book on "virtual" libraries but one on creating real Internet services, programs, and information products. It is for those librarians who are already familiar with E-mail, ftp, gopher, the World Wide Web, and Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and who wish to become an "Internet Information Producer and Provider" (IIPOP). The types of IIPOP services covered include Internet instruction and distance education programs, marketing library services on the Internet, creating an electronic library, publishing an electronic journal or newsletter, and creating specialized Internet information products. The main chapters discuss the planning, implementation, and maintenance of these services and provide 18 pertinent case studies of successful library projects, each including a description, contact person, E-mail address or WWW homepage address, and, if appropriate, a screen image of the homepage. Appendixes feature sources of client/server software, a selected list of tutorials on setting up Internet service and client software, a basic primer on UNIX, directory of IIPOP discussion lists and newsgroups, and a bibliography for IIPOPs. The authors take pains to provide realistic scenarios and encourage librarians to think carefully about the costs and benefits of attempting such a service. Although the price is steep, the book presents practical expertise gleaned from the authors' experiences as Internet consultants. Recommended for librarians seriously considering providing Internet programs and services.?Robert Battenfeld, Long Island Univ.
