Other than attending the occasional training session, webinar, or conference workshop, much of what a professional librarian needs to learn will be self-taught. Knowing this, Neal-Schuman created THE TECH SET book series.
Edited by sought-after educator, emerging-technology information consultant, and librarian, Ellyssa Kroski, these start-to-finish primers will have you ready to implement all the essential technologies and tools you need to deliver outstanding new services and remain relevant in the digital age.
The first series of ten titles was released late last year and the publisher has just released a second set of titles 11-20. Below we have a combined list of the entire series to date.
