"It's practically a requirement in the Internet Age for libraries, and especially school library media centers, to have a Web page. Church shows how a Web page can be transformed into a virtual library, providing a comprehensive research center for students, staff, and community. Included among the topics are access to such resources as an online catalog, subscription databases, eBooks, pathfinders, and Web quests to guide users through the maze of the World Wide Web, and direct access to professionals through instant messaging. Anything dealing with the Internet becomes obsolete before it's published, but for the most part the information in this book is up-do-date. . . . this title will be a valuable guide for any library media specialist seeking to expand services beyond the walls of the school. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
