Crossing the Internet threshold : an instructional handbook by Roy Tennant( Book )

42 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is addressed to people who have access to the Internet and want to learn how to use it and to people who want to teach Internet skills to others. It includes the content of a 14-hour training institute and beginning and advanced level exercises, as well as discussion topics, sample overheads and other materials, and a checklist of reminders for trainers. Introductory materials provide a conceptual framework oriented to users. The easiest methods for using the Internet are explained clearly and concisely and will work, in most cases, for everyone who can log on to an Internet-connected computer. Chapters are designed to stand alone so that users can choose which of the resources they wish to pursue. Topics covered are: (1) information needed by beginners, including a glossary, instructions on getting connected, Internet service providers, and a bibliography; (2) electronic mail, including listservs and electronic journals; (3) Internet remote login (Telnet) and Internet file transfer protocol (ftp); and (4) fact sheets on other resources, such as Archie, Gopher, Hytelnet, Usenet News, and Wide Area Information Servers (wais). Three graphics showing the extent and organization of the network are appended. (Krn)
XML in libraries by Roy, Ed Tennant( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirteen libraries share their experiences with using XML to encode, transfer, process, and store data in their digital records. Each chapter lists the project goals and justifications, challenges encountered, successes and failures, and lessons learned. The contributors explain how specific tasks were accomplished, cite snippets of code when they are particularly useful or illustrative, and provide links to further resources. The projects include updating MARC records with XMLMARC, creating a unified e-government portal, publishing book online, and transforming work processing documents into XML.

Internet basics, update 1996 by Roy Tennant( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This update to a previous digest briefly describes the Internet computer network, the physical connections and communication protocols that make it possible, and the applications and information resources the network provides. The applications covered include electronic mail and listservs, the world wide web, telnet connections with remote library catalogs or databases, and file transfer protocol (FTP). Often barriers of distance, time, and cost that are significant with other forms of electronic communication are not as significant on the Internet because it accesses systems quickly regardless of proximity and because institutional users are not usually charged by level of use. Moreover, getting connected to the Internet is often not even as expensive as getting cable television. The Internet continues to evolve through formal standards development and individual or corporate software creation and enhancement. (BEW)

Internet Basics by Roy Tennant( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet is a worldwide network of computer networks. In the United States, the National Science Foundation Network (NSFNet) serves as the Internet "backbone" (a very high speed network that connects key regions across the country). The NSFNet will likely evolve into the National Research and Education Network (NREN) as defined in the High Performance Computing Act of 1991. For the Internet to exist, there must be connections between computers and agreements on how they are to communicate. These connections, which can consist of any of a variety of communication media or methods, are usually established within areas or regions by the particular networking organization with authority or economic interest in that area. The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) currently defines how Internet computers, from personal computers to mainframes, are to communicate. Electronic mail (e-mail) can be used by two Internet users to exchange messages with each other, distribute messages to a list of subscribers, support electronic discussions, or distribute electronic journals (e-journals). The Telnet facility for remote login enables computer users to establish connections with bibliographic databases, campus information systems of various universities, full-text databases, data files, and other online services. The File Transfer Protocol enables the user to transfer virtually any kind of file that can be stored on a computer from one Internet-connected computer to another. Tools such as Gopher, WAIS, and World Wide Web make information on the network easier to locate and use. Although the use of NSFNet has been limited to non-profit research and educational uses, dialogues have recently begun about commercialization and privatization of the its infrastructure.

Getting started with cloud computing : a LITA guide by Edward M Corrado( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A one-stop guide for implementing cloud computing. Cloud computing can save your library time and money by enabling convenient, on-demand network access to resources like servers and applications. Libraries that take advantage of the cloud have fewer IT headaches because data centers provide continuous updates and mobility that standard computing cannot easily provide, which means less time and energy spent on software, and more time and energy to devote to the library's day to day mission and services. Here, leading LITA experts demystify language, deflate hype, and provide library-specific examples of real-world success you can emulate to guarantee efficiency and savings. Among several features, this book helps you select data access and file sharing services, build digital repositories, and utilize other cloud computing applications in your library. Together, you and the cloud can save time and money, and build the information destination your patrons will love."--Publisher's website
The Art and Science of Web Server Management by Roy Tennant( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creating and maintaining a web server, particularly for a large organization, is both an art and a science. The science of link management, statistical analysis, and error redirection is only a part of what is required of web managers. Additional responsibilities include knowing the information needs of users; data owner support services; training others in web document design and markup; policy formation and enforcement; defining server standards; encouraging creativity; monitoring users; and checking links. This document describes the web manager's responsibilities, and provides instructions on how to customize default error messages and tips for web page referrals and redirection. No web manager is perfect, but those that approach perfection will bring a mix of skills and talents appropriate to the needs of the organization in building effective web systems. (Author/SWC)
