Internet Library for Librarians

The Internet Library for Librarians is VERY COMPREHENSIVE. It contains links for every online resource imaginable – tools, accessible online libraries, almanacs and directories, email lists for management, archives, specialized journals, etc. The technical tips, like a few other references here, reveal a strong on-the-ground perspective.

A collection of concept papers, such as the advantages and disadvantages of desktop videoconferencing in a library setting, was prepared by advanced library students at the University of Alberta. That university is responsible for sustaining many rural libraries.

Open Source Digital Asset Management

Digital Asset Management (DAM) supports the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets like images, video and audio recordings. This resource tracks the main open source DAM solutions that are currently available. A great, low or no cost entry into this sphere.

ALA Principal's Manual

The American Association of School Librarians has put together a site for principals for building a school library media program.

References entitled digital libraries, for the most part, address digitizing already existing materials, including policy issues like copyright laws.

Virtual libraries, like this web site, typically structure links to other sites. Some might allow a chat or conferencing capability, too.
