Review quote

"A good foundation for implementing XML technologies. . . . The included case studies may very well inspire readers to investigate potential projects that expand library services. . . . The inclusion of exercises, topics for discussion, and working examples can be used in a classroom setting. Readers may also use the text for personal study to gain a working knowledge of XML technologies." - ARBA
