    Librarians Introduction to Programming Languages is the best

    thing I've seen written for librarians who want to know why computer programming is important in libraries. Libraries are about many things. Some of those things are data and information. Computers excel at creating, storing, manipulating, and disseminating data and information. The intersection of these two worlds is librarians who program. Using examples from Library Land, this book, compares, contrasts, and introduces a wide range of programming languages. Given this book, a networked computer, and a few hours of time, the reader ought to be able to write their very first program in any number of popular languages and consequently learn how programming is essential to the profession.

  • Data Visualization: A Guide to Visual Storytelling for Librarians

    September 2016

    Data Visualization tells the librarys data story, not through dry statistics and text, but through real-life case studies from libraries that describe how data visualizations clearly illustrate such library roles as research activity, teaching information literacy, and collection development. This LITA Guide also describes tools libraries use to create the visualizations and demonstrates how data visualizations can convey library data in a quick, comprehensive, visually stimulating, entertaining way that emphasizes the importance and relevance of the library and its services to todays populace.

    Beverley E. Crane, Former Trainer & Instructional Desginer, DIALOG; and author of Infographics: A Practical Guide for Librarians

    Data visualization can transform dry and complex data into fascinating insights and help librarians discover new patterns and trends easily missed otherwise. For this reason, data visualization is a highly relevant topic to libraries. Data Visualization: A Guide to Visual Storytelling for Libraries offers readers a practical overview of what it takes to visualize library data from data cleanup and preparation to design principles and specific tools and techniques through a number of interesting case studies, which illustrate how libraries can utilize data visualization for real-world benefits. Bohyun Kim, Associate Director for Library Applications and Knowledge Systems at University of Maryland, Baltimore, Health Sciences and Human Services Library; and author of Understanding Gamification and The Library Mobile Experience: Practices and User Expectations

  • Integrating LibGuides into Library

    Websites October 2016

    Integrating LibGuides into Library Websites is the

    LibGuides cookbook you have been eagerly waiting for. The book helps you head straight to your area of need and interest to get practical information about designing, using and managing LibGuides for your library. Written from the perspective of academic librarians, this book walks you through four areas of LibGuide Use and Management. Each area focuses on a specific LibGuide skill: Creation and Justification of your Guide, Managing Your Guide, Designing your Guide and Using your LibGiuide as an instructional tool. I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to pick up a book and go right to the chapter I need knowing I will find great information when I get there. The book contains a balance of theory and practical steps to engage many different types of readers. Also invaluable are the references at the end of each chapter for further exploration.
