I haven't seen a copy yet, but the title and the authors make this title worth a look -- "Technology for the Rest of Us: A Primer on Computer Technologies for the Low-Tech Librarian" by Nancy Courtney. The sections and authors include:
  • Computer networks by Robert Molyneux
  • Wireless LANs by Wilfred Drew

  • OpenURL basics by Walt Crawford
  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) by Eric H Schnell

Good array of current technology topics that are currently in use in libraries and that are still being developed. [from LibrarianInBlack]
