Walker, Lizzy. 2015. Book review: Library automation: core concepts and practical systems analysis. By Dania Bilal, Third Edition Santa Barbara: Libraries Unlimited, 2014, 279 p.
Bilal discusses at length integrated library systems (ILS), provides and overview of the Library Automation Lifecycle (LALC), and emphasizes throughout the fact that technology changes rapidly. As a result of technological change, libraries will always be involved in some kind of ILS implementation project. The book is specifically designed for MLIS graduate students, educators, and researchers interested in library automation and ILSs, yet the author also creates a valuable resource that any type of library can use as a reference.
