Charged with upgrading aging collections and providing the most recent and secure technological resources for research, school librarians often find themselves torn between the communal nature of the academic environment and the potential dangers of the online world. To help address these concerns, a new online publication–Library Technology NOW! (LTN)–reviews the latest library innovations and examines many of the issues affecting school libraries in the digital age. Recent articles include reviews of firewalls, spyware tools, and anti-virus software. Produced by a corps of volunteer writers and editors from the professional library community, LTN also offers user forums where library professionals can discuss their impressions of a product or tool. Plus, a collection of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds give users customizable access to the latest library news. LTN was founded in early 2004 by the North Texas Regional Library System’s Technology Committee and the Automation and Technology Round Table of the Texas Library Association.
