Australian Library JournalIt is inevitable that the role of a librarian is going to evolve along with technology, all professionals. His straight-forward writing style and Vernum's editorial skills are what set this book apart and make for an interesting and compelling look at the network over the past twelve years. Dempsey will leave you with a new perspective of what the library profession means today, and the question of how it will have evolved in another twelve years.
