For a full list of my publications, please check my CV, which is kept up to date more quickly than this webpage.

In 2014, I wrote both a chapter of a book (The Case for Open Hardware in Libraries) and another volume of Library Technology Report about 3D Printers for Libraries .

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. At this point, mainly a history, but I’m still very proud of the work that went into the book.

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, have written a series of Library Technology Reports for ALA TechSource, and briefly wrote a monthly column for TechSource online.
