Author Name:Barclay, Donald A.
A manual designed for front-line to upper-level managers responsible for making decisions about public access computers in libraries, covering both technical and managerial aspects.
Topics covered include facilities planning, hardware and software, staff training, and more.
"Effective management of public-access computers is a balancing act," Barclay says, between providing access to computers and maintaining them.
He attempts to provide a one-stop source of information to enable achieving success at this balancing act.
He first reviews the types of information about technology that a manager needs to know, then discusses the physical facilities for computer installations, hardware, software, CD-ROMs, and printers.
Next, he turns to management issues (such as working with the systems department), security issues, issues relating to staffing public-access computer installations, staff training, and relations with end users.
