Library Media Connection

Each of these books covers a comprehensive variety of topics and are nicely organized, with chapters in a chronological sequence from the history of each topic to a chapter dealing with “The Future of …”. The only exception is Online Privacy. Each volume has a Facts About section, Related Organizations, and For Future Research. The Facts About section would have been better placed as sidebars as their placement at the back of each book makes them seem less important. Predicting the future and keeping these books current will be a challenge; they are as current today as they can be, and will provide students with up-to-date information about a breadth of current issues.
