Product Description

Gibbons (public services and collection development, U. of Rochester, River Campus Libraries) offers academic librarians in public services, technology, and administration insights into the role of technology in the lives of today's tech-savvy undergraduate students. Following overviews of the academic library's mission and of the Net Generation, individual chapters focus on specific technological genres--online gaming, blogging, social bookmarking--and offer evidence-based observations about how students use these technologies in their social and academic practices. Gibbons suggests ways that this knowledge can be incorporated into the mission of an academic library, utilizing aspects of these technologies to provide value-added services to students by communicating in their preferred means.
