Computers in Libraries 29(1), January 2009
The entire issue is on Providing Access When & Where They Want It, which is good reading anytime, but there are two articles that think are especially important:
West, Jessamyn, Checklists for the Distributed Librarian (tech tips for every librarian column), pp. 38-39.
West provides good ways to make sure you are getting to your customers via the website, the catalog, and social networking services. I like that she ends with a section on “counting what counts.”
Chudnov, Daniel, Practical Geek-Keeping, or, How to Hire—And Keep—Good Technical Staff, pp. 25-26.
Librarians and IT people are often at odds, so making sure you hire good ones and can communicate with them is critical. He emphasizes the importance of communication in the hiring decision.
