From the Publisher
Major topics covered in this volume include information resources in the school library, the different varieties of educational software available, resources available via the web, and the importance of creating a school library web site. This book also addresses tools that can be used in classrooms and technology administration—everything from automation and filters to security on student computers and security systems in general. Also discussed is the creation of technology plans in order to look to the future. This up-to-date overview of technology will provide soon-to-be school librarians, as well as current school librarians, the background and breadth to realize the potential they have for improving library services to children.
