“Make [your] characters want something right away—even if it’s only a glass of water. Characters paralyzed by the meaninglessness of modern life still have to drink water from time to time.” —Kurt Vonnegut “‘The cat sat on the mat’ is not the beginning of a story, but ‘the cat sat on the dog’s mat’ is.” —John Le Carré Nothing is more inspiring for a beginning writer than listening to masters of the craft talk about the writing life. But if you can’t get Vladimir Nabokov, Virginia Woolf, and Gabriel García Márquez together at the Algonquin, The Modern Library Writer’s Workshop gives you the next best thing. Stephen Koch, former chair of Columbia University’s graduate creative writing program, presents a unique guide to the craft of fiction. Along with his own lucid observations and commonsense techniques, he weaves together wisdom, advice, and inspiring commentary from some of our greatest writers. Taking you from the moment of inspiration (keep a notebook with you at all times), to writing a first draft (do it quickly! you can always revise later), to figuring out a plot (plot always serves the story, not vice versa), Koch is a benevolent mentor, glad to dispense sound advice when you need it most. The Modern Library Writer’s Workshop belongs on every writer’s shelf, to be picked up and pored over for those moments when the muse needs a little help finding her way.

Libraries are constantly facing challenges due to new technology. To keep up with the latest developments, modernizing facilities and using electronic information tools and techniques to provide services in digital form have become essential. This has caused a major shift in the responsibilities of librarians, who are not only engaged in collection development but are also entrusted to provide advanced technological services, as well as generating financial resources for their respective institutions. This change has become easier in the electronic information era as information is treated as the ultimate resource. Computers and networks are expected to play an increasingly important role for resource sharing and information management. Use of information and communications techonology (ICT) is now treated as an essential technology for libraries. Emerging technologies, media, publishing trends, information storage methods, information retrieval practices, and more have changed the concept of library and information services. In this book, analyses are given of the possible changes in library and information services due to the emergence of the digital and virtual environment. The contents of this volume are broadly divided into twelve chapters on these topics, including: ICT in Libraries; Electronic Resources in Libraries; Soft Skills and Librarians; Institutional Repository; Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright; Marketing of Library Services; Application of Cloud Computing in Libraries; E-Learning and Librarianship; Knowledge Management in the Digital Era; Emerging Technology in Libraries; Open Source Software; and Modern Library Services.
