Resources for Teaching the Vietnam War : An Annotated Guide

This is an inexpensive yet essential resource for anyone trying to teach the war.   It will also be a great shortcut for you as the author, who was a Special Services librarian in Vietnam, has done her homework.  She is very well read in works about the war.  The book is divided into sections, such as fiction, poetry, and documentaries.  Not only is each work annotated, but there is a guide on where to obtain films and speakers.   At the back are suggestions on how to divide the war into units for teaching and resources from the book are listed for each unit.

    Planning for Automation : A How-To-Do-It Manual for Librarians (How-To-Do-It Manuals for Libraries, No. 78)  with  John M. Cohn,  Keith Michael Fiels, Keith Michael Feils

The description on Amazon says: "Here is a basic, comprehensive guide to the essential components of automation planning in medium-sized and smaller libraries.   Emphasizing modular (often microcomputer-based) options, the authors discuss the entire process, from defining basic concepts and terms through establishing priorities, designing specifications, preparing RFPs, and negotiating contracts. The final section covers specifics such as standards, machine-readable cataloging, training and public relations, and the life cycle of automated systems. Fully documented with sample forms, charts, and recommended reading, it will prove invaluable for public, academic, special, or school librarians."  1997
