One of my favorite things I’ve ever written is a volume of Library Technology Report entitled Gadgets & Gizmos: Personal Electronics and the Library It’s available in a huge variety of formats, including for the Amazon Kindle, as an incredible ebook bundle from ALA Publishing, or in print.

Its sequel, Gadgets & Gizmos: Libraries and the Post-PC Era, was a huge experiment for ALA publishing, as it’s the first LTR to be licensed under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-NonCommercial, if you’re curious). Thus you can access the whole publication freely via the ALA Metapress site, but I ask that if you find it valuable, cough up the cash for a print copy and give it to your local library for their collection.

I currently have two books in print. My first book was Library Blogging, which I co-authored with Karen Coombs. It’s from Linworth Publishing, and discusses the how and why of libraries and blogging. Technical and practical, it’s a great guide to the form.

My second book is now available from Neal Schuman publishers, and it’s called Mobile Technologies and Libraries. It’s one book in a larger set that is being called The Tech Set. It is, perhaps obviously, about the explosion of mobile and how mobile services change library services.

I have written for both Library Journal and NetConnect, been published by ALA TechSource in Library Technology Report (vol. 45 no. 1), and write a monthly column for TechSource online.
