Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Summary: This book examines the impact of recent electronic developments (particularly the Internet) on local studies librarianship. The recent explosion in use of the Internet has been matched by an increased interest in local, family and community history, all areas in which local studies libraries excel. This book brings these two developments together. The book provides practitioners with practical advice on the provision of web-based services for users. Such areas as e-geneaology and e-learning are covered. Importantly, the book provides examples of best-practice and shows how practical lessons can be learned from the experiences of the innovators in the field. Key Features: Nothing comparable in print and has contemporary relevance Increased recognition of the importance of local studies Covers the electronic revolution which has not been addressed in this field Increased interest amongst library users
