20 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade, Dempsey{u2019}s writing has covered diverse and wide ranging topics including the evolution of libraries, from how library organization, services and technologies are co-evolving with the behaviours of their users to support their changing research and learning needs, to how the curatorial traditions of archives, libraries and museums have come together in the digital environment. This selection of posts, originally from Dempsey's blog, has been expertly curated by Kenneth J. Varnum to showcase Dempsey{u2019}s dual ability to firstly explore an issue and then to reveal the higher-order trends. Using this method, Dempsey provides his incisive perspective on where libraries have been in the last decade as well as his prescient insights into future trends and directions."--From publisher's website

Library and Information Commission public library Internet survey : a report prepared by UKOLN by Sarah Ormes( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is widely recognised that the Internet and other networks will become central channels for the delivery of learning, leisure and business services. It is crucial that public libraries respond to the challenge that these changes introduce so that they can continue to provide services of relevance to their users' needs. These issues were recognised by the Public Library Review commissioned by the Department of National Heritage. The Library and Information Commission has been considering how it might advise Government in this area and is commissioning several studies. This report has been prepared by UKOLN at the request of the Library and Information Commission. It is based on a survey of UK public library authorities carried out in late November 1995. Every UK authority (167) responded so that it represents a complete picture of the UK situation. We are very pleased to be able to present what is the first in-depth account of public library use of the Internet
