"To help meet the challenge of using technology effectively, The Public Library Association offers a comprehensive and practical guide to preparing a technology plan. Wired for the Future aids in preparing a plan that positions the library to meet its objectives for the community, its staff, and its best future. Authors Mayo and Nelson provide the raw materials to build, implement, and evaluate a workable technology plan. All the necessary tools are provided to determine technology needs, identify technology options, select a technology infrastructure, and implement the plan.
