    DescriptionEver wondered what cloud computing really means in practise and how it can help you? Cloud computing has caused a revolution in libraries and theoretically offered a simpler, cheaper, more collaborative way of working and providing user services. International thought leaders on library technology including Marshall Breeding and Nicole Engard unpick the promises and the reality of cloud computing in this cutting-edge guide to understanding and using these tools. While Part I defines what cloud computing is and various approaches to exploiting it's potential Part II goes on to explore the technologies which are driving this revolution. Part 3 draws together a cross section of case studies demonstrating innovative tools in practice such as Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Calendar, and Ning. The key topics covered are: * perspectives on cloud computing in libraries * an introduction to the cloud * pros and cons of cloud computing * what cloud computing means for libraries * librarian and vendor perspectives on cloud computing * cloud computing for LIS education * library discovery services * Koha in the cloud * leveraging OCLC Cooperative Library Data in the cloud via web services * building push-button repositories in the cloud with DSpace and Amazon * selecting a cloud-based data access and file sharing solution * SharePoint strategies for establishing a powerful library intranet Readership: This is an essential practical toolkit for information professionals working in libraries, archives and museums who want to get to grips with cloud computing concepts and implement practical tools. It also provides an up-to-date introduction for LIS students and academics.
