The Librarian's Introduction to Programming Languages : A LITA Guide Hardback
Edited by Beth C. Thomsett-Scott
Part of the LITA Guides series
The Librarian's Introduction to Programming Languages presents case studies and practicalapplications for using the top programming languages in library and information settings.
Whilethere are books and Web sites devoted to teaching programming, there are few works thataddress multiple programming languages or address the specific reasons why programming is acritical area of learning for library and information science professionals. There are many books on programming languages but no recent items directly written for librarians that span a variety of programs.
Many practicing librarians see programming as something for IT people or beyond their capabilities.
This book will help these librarians to feel comfortable discussion programming with others by providing an understanding of when the language might be useful, what is needed to make it work, and relevant tools to extend its application.
Additionally, the inclusion of practical examples lets readers try a small "app" for the language.
