Connecting Online: Creating a Successful Image on the Internet
Sherwin and Avila
Submitter: This is the 1997 edition and it is in a college library in [Canada].
Holly: For the love of All Things Holy, people, I am begging you to weed your computer books. Clearly, a successful online image in 2017 has literally nothing to do with anything pictured on the cover of this book. That telephone has a rotary dial!
Submitter: When I was a public Librarian back in the 90’s we could not have enough books like this on shelf. It seemed everyone was coming in to learn about this new thing called the “internet.”
I am sure this book was very helpful back in 1994. It clearly got a lot of use. 2015? Doubtful. I can think of quite a bit that won’t be covered in this book now that its 20 years old.
Holly: This is quickly becoming one of my favorite categories here on ALB. I’m 41 years old, so I was discovering the Internet as it happened to mainstream America. I got my first email address in 1992 when I was a freshman at Eastern Michigan University (@emunix.edu or something like that. Go Eagles!). This book is just so…dirty! Weed it on condition if nothing else!
