With the world becoming increasingly more dependent upon the Internet, libraries offer an essential service by providing access to this worldwide network. To help their patrons, modern librarians must have a thorough understanding of this technology. Integrating the Web into Everyday Library Services: A Practical Guide for Librarians is a comprehensive guide to a variety of aspects of Internet use and research.

The book is basic, assuming only a basic understanding of computer use and Internet research.

This guide begins with:

  • a basic explanation of the mechanics of the Internet and World Wide Web, then moves on to
  • explore the variety of ways that a user can discover online information,
  • how information is stored online via the cloud, and
  • how a librarian can enhance his or her library's online presence.

Later chapters explain:
  • how to use the Internet to communicate,
  • how to help patrons research and evaluate information, and
  • how to protect patrons and yourself from online dangers.

The final chapter is devoted to helping librarians solve basic computer problems that their patrons may encounter, including troubleshooting Internet connections.
