Paling's Primer provides a greatly needed, readable guide to practicing librarians in the use, planning, and purchase of computers, and should be on the bookshelf of every librarian and educator. * Reference and User Services Quarterly *
The author does a nice job of taking a personal computer from 'black box' to a set of identifiable components for the use, without an overwhelming amount of detail. * Journal Of Education For Library and Information Science *
The work presents clear and calm discussion, comparisons, analysis of the benefits and features of operating systems, as well, as the integration of hardware and software to meet library needs. It offers direction to a wide audience, not just the techno-challenged librarian and would be an excellent aid for those teaching in the technology area. * Australian Library Journal *
Covers hardware and components, operating systems and software, networks and security, and future developments and purchasing. * Reference and Research Book News *
A very welcome addition...it would prove very useful for the student or indeed the practitioner who needs to take a quick peek before that next systems meeting. * The Electronic Library *
