Engard, Nicole, with Rachel Singer Gordon. The Accidental Systems Librarian, Second Edition. Information Today, Inc., 2012. ISBN: 978-1-57387-453-3

As one reader points out, this book will help drive home the point that systems work in libraries is not just about knowing computers, but engages all the skills and qualities of good librarianship. The book give a good overview of the different types of library systems and services typically supported by systems librarians, and tips on how to stay current with new technologies. This new edition provides updates on the latest library technologies: mobile devices, open source software, social networks, WiFi, ebooks, and much more. A web site<http://tasl.web2learning.net/> is also available to keep the information in the book up to date.


Shumaker, David. The Embedded Librarian.
Information Today, Inc., 2012. ISBN: 978-1-57387-452-6

In an era where collaborative partnerships have become vital to libraries, this timely book explains what it means to be "embedded"; placing information professionals into partnerships with the individuals and working groups that depend upon their knowledge and expertise. Not just an option for corporate librarians, Shumaker describes models for public, school, and academic librarians. As he outlines potential strategies and implementations for embedded librarians, he makes a compelling case for this approach to information service delivery. Shumaker also writes a popular blog, The Embedded Librarian<http://embeddedlibrarian.com/>.
