DiVincenzo, Salvatore and Elizabeth Malafi. Supporting Local Businesses and Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age. Santa Barbara, California : Libraries Unlimited, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, 2017. ISBN 9781440851520.

>From the publisher:
Serving communities today entails serving businesses-in particular, local businesses, entrepreneurs, and those looking to become entrepreneurs. Understandably, many librarians are not prepared for this role, and as a result feel uncomfortable in it. Supporting Local Businesses and Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age: The Public Librarian's Toolkit explains how librarians and libraries can better serve the business community, offering specific guidance on everything from information resources-including books, databases, and free online sites-to programming, special events, marketing, and outreach.

Readers will gain insight into key topics ranging from embedded business librarianship, virtual business librarianship, and government documents to seminars, one-on-one appointments, and trade shows. Providing invaluable guidance based on the authors' real-world experience and research as well as interviews with librarians in all sizes of libraries around the country, this book offers practical, actionable advice and proven best practices for serving local business owners and entrepreneurs.

*         Gives librarians tools and practical advice for better serving small businesses and entrepreneurs

  *   Provides librarians with the "big picture" of serving small businesses, from collections and services to programs
  *   Speaks to librarians at all sizes of libraries, offering concrete guidance and tips that they can immediately put to use in their community
  *   Offers real-life examples from librarians throughout the United States

Farney, Tabatha. Using Digital Analytics for Smart Assessment. Chicago : ALA Editions, 2018. ISBN 9780838915981.

>From the publisher:
Tracking the library user's journey is no simple task in the digital world; users can often navigate through a series of different websites, including library websites, discovery tools, link resolvers, and more just to view a single journal article. Your library collects massive amounts of data related to this journey-probably more than you realize, and almost certainly more than you analyze. Too often library analytic programs simplify data into basic units of measurements that miss useful insights. Here, data expert Farney shows you how to maximize your efforts: you'll learn how to improve your data collection, clean your data, and combine different data sources.

Teaching you how to identify and analyze areas that fit your library's priorities, this book covers:

  *   case studies of library projects with digital analytics;
  *   ways to use email campaign data from MailChimp or ConstantContact;
  *   how to measure click-through rates from unavailable items in the catalog to the ILL module;
  *   getting data from search tools such as library catalogs, journal search portals, link resolvers, and digital repositories;
  *   using COUNTER compliant data from your electronic resources;
  *   techniques for using Google Tag Manager for custom metrics and dimensions;
  *   descriptions of analytics tools ranging from library analytics tools like Springshare's LibInsights and Orangeboy's Savannah to more focused web analytics tools like Google Analytics, Piwik, and Woopra; and
  *   data visualization tools like Tableau or Google Data Studio.

Focusing on digital analytics principles and concepts, this book walks you through the many tools available, including step-by-step examples for typical library needs.

Breisch, Kenneth. American Libraries 1730 - 1950. New York : W.W. Norton & Company ; Washington, D.C. : Library of Congress, 2017. ISBN 9780393731606.

An expansive overview of our storehouses of knowledge, from the earliest library building (Philadelphia, 1745) to midcentury modern and beyond. Although new technologies appear poised to alter it, the library remains a powerful site for discovery, and its form is still determined by the geometry of the book and the architectural spaces devised to store and display it. American Libraries provides a history and panorama of these much-loved structures, inside and out, encompassing the small personal collection, the vast university library, and everything in between.

Through 500 photographs and plans selected from the encyclopedic collections of the Library of Congress, Kenneth Breisch traces the development of libraries in the United States, from roots in such iconic examples as the British Library and Paris's Bibliotheque-Ste.-Genevieve to institutions imbued with their own American mythology. Starting with the private collections of wealthy merchants and landowners during the eighteenth century, the book looks at the Library of Congress, large and small public libraries, and the Carnegie libraries, and it ends with a glimpse of modern masterworks. [Includes] 850 illustrations.
