A propos du livre :
Synopsis: Cloud computing can save your library time and money by enabling convenient, on-demand network access to resources like servers and applications. Libraries that take advantage of the cloud have fewer IT headaches because data centres provide continuous updates and mobility that standard computing cannot easily provide - which means less time and energy spent on software, and more time and energy to devote to the library's day-to-day mission and services. In this timely book, leading Library and Information Technology Association experts demystify language, deflate hype and provide library-specific examples of real-world success that you can emulate to guarantee efficiency and savings. Among other valuable features, it will help you: select data access and file sharing services; build digital repositories; and, utilize other cloud computing applications in your library. Working together with this one-stop guide for implementing cloud computing, you and the cloud can save time and money, and build the information destination your users will love.
