Better Library and Learning Space, edited by Les Watson, captures the insights and practical ideas of leading international librarians, educators and designers to offer a ‘creative resource bank' that can be used to transform libraries and learning spaces.  The Midwest Book Review said, "informed and informative, Better Library and Learning Spaces is invaluable, seminal and highly recommended."

Mastering Digital Librarianship, edited by Alison Mackenzie and Lindsey Martin, examines the changing roles of the librarian and how working within a rich digital environment has altered the way professionals develop the appropriate 'know how', skills, knowledge and behaviours required in order to operate effectively.

Research, Evaluation and Audit, edited by Maria J Grant, Barbara Sen and Hannah Spring, provides library and information professionals with the information they need to undertake research projects in the workplace in order to inform their own practice, contribute to the wider evidence base for library and information science and improve service delivery.

Going Beyond Google Again by Jane Devine and Francine Egger-Sider builds upon the authors' previous well-respected book, Going Beyond Google, which placed teaching the Invisible Web into information literacy programmes. Going Beyond Google Again expands on the teaching foundation laid in the first book and continues to document the Invisible Web's existence and evolution, and suggests ways of teaching students to use it.

Access and Identity Management for Libraries by Masha Garibyan, Simon McLeish and John Paschoud is the first book to explain the principles behind access management, the available technologies and how they work. This includes an overview of federated access management technologies, detailed case studies describing how access management is being implemented internationally and a practical guide to the resources available to help plan, implement and operate access management in libraries.  

RDA: Resource, Description and Access Print, 2013 Revision, a full-text print version of RDA, offers a snapshot that serves as an offline access point to help solo and part-time cataloguers evaluate RDA, as well as to support training and classroom use in any size institution.  The 2013 Revision contains a full accumulation of RDA that replaces the previous edition of RDA Print and takes into account all the changes that have occurred since it was first published in 2010.

M-Libraries 4, edited by Mohamed Ally and Gill Needham is based on the proceedings of the Fourth International M-Libraries Conference held in Milton Keynes in 2012 and provides an up-to-date showcase of the innovative and inspiring work that libraries are doing across the world to interact with their users and deliver resources via mobile devices.
