Editorial description(s):

Designed specifically for information professionals in library, education, and business settings, this guide serves as an intelligent, highly accessible introduction to networking and its related technical applications and concepts: the Internet, LANs, WANs, IP addresses, the OSI, domain names, servers, file formats, routing, and more. Many of the social aspects connected to technology are also treated, among them the economics of the Internet (monopolies, oligopolies, and cartels); privacy; open source versus proprietary development; intellectual property; and legal issues. Four labs and two case studies provide depth and illustrative material to enhance an already elucidating text. Additional sources of information, both Web sites and printed material, appear in lists at the end of each chapter. An index and a thorough glossary conclude the book. Overall, a commendable tool that should prove highly informative and useful to all information professionals. RBB
