ALA Press Release – “The American Library Association (ALA) has named “The Tech Set” the winner of the 2011 Greenwood Publishing Group Award for the Best Book in Library Literature. “The Tech Set” was envisioned, created, and edited by Ellyssa Kroski and published by Neal-Schuman.

These user-friendly, practical and highly readable primers offer a rich source of up-to-date information that will allow librarians to understand and employ social networks, wikis, blogs, mobile information services and other technologies to further library services. Kroski will receive $5,000 and a 24K gold-framed citation, donated by the Greenwood Publishing Group.”
