"Seventh edition updates the material and presents new information that is relevant to the topic of desktop operating systems, including Windows, Apple macOS, Linux, and Chrome OS. In addition to these operating systems, this edition includes new information on mobile operating systems, as well as chapters on subjects peripheral to operating systems, such as computer security, desktop virtualization, and connecting computers and mobile devices to networks. I carefully revised every chapter as needed, with more illustrations and plenty of hands-on opportunities. I added content throughout, while working to streamline the book in response to feedback we received from instructors"--Provided by publisher.

The 160+ page study examines the purchasing plans of academic libraries for key computing infrastructure including plans for fixed workstations, personal computers, laptops, netbooks, tablets and other computing devices. The report helps to answer questions such as: how are libraries and their sometime patrons in college information technology departments allocating funds among different types of computing devices? How has the mobile computing revolution affected plans for fixed workstation purchasing? What percentage of students use their own computers in the library and what percentage of them use the library’s computers? What computer brands do libraries prefer? What are the official and real replacement cycles for computers? How many computers are reserved for staff use alone? To what extent are libraries concentrating computing resources in “information commons” or technology centers? What is the future or such centers? What are their budgets? How much are libraries allocating to computer and information literacy? How effective are these policies.

The universal process of globalisation brings the peoples, cultures and languages of the world closer together. But this process does not have to make them more the same. The emerging technological tools of digital text creation and manufacture make possible quite the opposite - the revival of small cultures and languages. This books sets out to argue two things. Firstly, that the technological, commercial and cultural forces of globalisation are moving into a very complex phase in which the effects on the Australian publishing industry may not be what we expect. They need not fortify and extend the technological, commercial and cultural domination of the multinational corporations and the English language, but could become agents which foster increasing cultural diversity, greater local commercial autonomy, and the revival of local and ancestral languages and culture. The second aim of this book is to discuss the technological, human skills and enterprise possibilities for Australia, a small, multicultural country in an economic region where the English language is becoming less important.

The e-book guide for publishers: how to publish, EPUB format, ebook readers and suppliers. An electronic book (also e-book, ebook, electronic book, digital book) is a book-length publication in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, and produced on, published through, and readable on computers or other electronic devices. An e-book can be purchased/borrowed, downloaded, and used immediately, whereas when one buys or borrows a book, one must go to a bookshop, a home library, or public library during limited hours, or wait for a delivery. Electronic publishing or ePublishing includes the digital publication of e-books and electronic articles, and the development of digital libraries and catalogues. EPUB (short for electronic publication; alternatively capitalized as ePub, ePUB, EPub, or epub, with "EPUB" preferred by the vendor) is a free and open e-book standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). Self-publishing is the publication of any book or other media by the author of the work, without the involvement of an established third-party publisher. One of the greatest benefits brought about by ebooks software is the ability for anyone to create professional ebooks without having to fork out thousands of dollars to design and publish a book. People can easily become authors overnight and earn income from selling online ebooks.
