Customizable pathfinders for a wide range of subjects9 Mar. 2005
Midwest Book Review
- Published on Amazon.com
An ideal "how to" instructional guide and reference for anyone needing quick, easy-to-navigate tools for getting information from the World Wide Web, 100 Ready-To-Use Pathfinders For The Web: A Guidebook And CD-ROM by Paula Wilson (technology columnist for "Public Libraries") offers authoritative, practical, effective, "user friendly" and customizable pathfinders for a wide range of subjects. These pathfinder techniques are presented in a uniform format listing essential print and electronic materials (encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, sourcebooks, online databases, periodicals, websites, primary sources, etc.). The electronic templates provide spaces for inserting local information such as library logos, links to the online catalog, programs and events, local agencies and organizations, specific collection in highlights, and so much more. Enhanced with an accompanying CD-ROM reproducing all 100 pathfinders in two separate versions (Cascading Style Sheets for easy conversion and adaptation to any library website and as Word Documents for creating print handouts) 100 Ready-To-Use Pathfinders For The Web will enable school and community librarians to effective serve the needs and interests of their students and patrons.
