Summary
"Whether you call yourself librarian or cybrarian, chances are you are facing the Digital Vastness with some anxiety. Now comes the complete manual for navigating library services in the new millennium. Written by the top infonauts in the field, The Cybrarian's Manual is both a tool for getting your bearings and a daily source of insight, information, and inspiration as you move ahead." "One of the best ways to master the Net is to draw on friendly colleagues for tips, resources, and ideas. In The Cybrarian's Manual you'll find these colleagues amiable, engaging, and generous in sharing their experiences. They were gathered by editor Pat Ensor, head of Information Services at the University of Houston Libraries and herself a pioneering cybrarian."--Jacket
