The Digital Age and Local Studies examines the impact of various electronic developments, particularly the internet on local studies librarianship. The recent explosion in use of the internet has been matched by an increased interest in local, family and community history, all areas in which local studies libraries excel. The book provides practitioners with practical advice on the provision of web-based services for users. Such areas as e-genealogy and e-learning are covered. Importantly, the book provides examples of best-practice and shows how practical lessons can be learned from the experiences of the innovators in the field.
