Reviews

..a competent and detailed introduction to social software...accessible to beginners, it has enough detail to inform experts in this topic as well....a helpful resource for librarians....I would recommend it for libraries' professional collections. Public Services Quarterly, 2009 ...a welcome addition to any libraries professional collection ARBA, March 2009 The author does a good job of covering the major types of tools, including some less-often discussed types...this book is a good introduction to 2.0 technologies and their uses in libraries. Journal of the Medical Library Association, January 2009 Ellyssa Kroski explains Web 2.0 technologies in an accessible, thorough manner...Beginners as well as more experienced users of these technologies will benefit from this book...useful to those professional (public, academic, special, and school librarians) who want to explore these tools as well as for those who want to implement them on a small or large scale in their organizations. Colorado Association of Libraries, July 2008 Ellyssa Kroski's Web 2.0 for Librarians and Information Professionals stands out because it surveys almost every current library manifestation of cutting-edge, participatory technology. American Libraries, August 2008 A nicely organized compendium of online social tools with specific examples of how they are used by public, academic, and school libraries. C and RL News, July/August 2008 Especially user friendly...Libraries will discover creative ways to reach out to their virtual patrons...Recommended for professional collections.
