Creating resources for decisions: a behind-the-scenes look at Library Technology Guides
Abstract: Learn about the process of building a database-driven Web site with dynamic content and explore a set of resources focused on library automation. This half- day workshop features the Library Technology Guides Web site, from both content and technology perspectives. The developer of Library Technology Guides is the instructor of this half-day workshop and he provides insight to the process of developing a database-driven Web environment. Breeding discusses both the technology that goes on behind the scenes and the process of acquiring and integrating content. The author maintains this resource to provide objective information about libraries, automation companies, and library-related technology products. In addition to describing the technology involved, Breeding discusses the evolution of the site, how the various databases have changed over time, and how they are maintained.
