As I monitor the use of Library Technology Guides, I observe that this Web site finds use in many library automation courses offered in graduate school of library and information science. I see many in-bound links coming from course pages and I get many inquires from graduate students on a variety of issues related to library automation. Iím always delighted to receive these requests and I try to respond to the best of my ability and time constraints.
It would be great, however, if those that make use of the resources in Library Technology Guides could provide some assistance in its maintenance. One of the most time-consuming aspects of the site, for example, involves maintaining the lib-web-cats database. Iím working to make it a much more comprehensive resource of libraries throughout the world and the automation systems they use.
If you find Library Technology Guides to be a worthy resource as a LIS student or faculty member, please consider lending a hand in the expansion of lib-web-cats or any other aspect of the site.
Please contact me if you would like further information on ways that you can contribute to Library Technology Guides. I really appreciate your assistance.
Whether or not you are able to contribute, I encourage you to drop me a note if your class makes use of Library Technology Guides. As I seek ways to sustain the site, it would be very useful for me to be able to document the way library schools make use of its resources.
