Library Robotics and Metadata Standards.
Library Robotics: Technology and English Language Arts Activities for Ages 8-24 (ISBN: 978-1440835582, 140 pp., $45), by Sarah Kepple, helps librarians build science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) skills as well as learning skills. It also provides guidance on launching a robotics program. Written for librarians by librarians, it includes lesson plans and activity guides to help start a robotics curriculum. There are also instructions for program models that use robotics. Chapters begin by providing information for stakeholders and then move on to explain how to select equipment and offer expansion ideas.
Metadata Standards and Web Services in Libraries, Archives, and Museums: An Active Learning Resource (ISBN: 978-1610694490, 291 pp., $75), by Erik Mitchell, gives readers the tools for de signing, developing, and implementing metadata information systems. Issues, trends, and technologies that are relevant in libraries, archives, and museums are also addressed. It also contains structured learning activities and instructions devoid of assumptions regarding the level of technical expertise. This makes it ideal for new graduates.
