School and community libraries are now an integral part of the telecommunication revolution that is exemplified by the now ubiquitous presence of internet informational resources and online databases. "Building Digital Libraries: A How-To-Do-It Manual For Libraries" is co-authored by Terry Reese (Digital Production Unit Head for Oregon State University Libraries) and Kyle Banerjee (Digital Services Program Manager for the Orbis Cascade Alliance in Eugene Oregon and a key architect of Oregon State's electronic documents repository) who draw upon their many years of experience and expertise to provide librarians and staff members with a detailed, organized, non-technical instruction guide through every step of the process for creating, organizing, and maintaining local repositories of information, records, and other forms of data. Covering the fundamental basics as well as the logistics of designing, constructing, and maintaining digital products using in-house content, all of the relevant tools, approaches, and third-party resource technologies are addressed, along with the role of metadata and standards, sharing data, systems operability, digital rights management, and more. A complete single volume manual, "Building Digital Libraries" is a welcome and strongly recommended reference for inclusion into Library Science curriculums and library staff on-site training programs.
