Libraries: At the Epicenter of the Digital DisruptionAccording to new ProQuest-sponsored research conducted by Information Today, Inc., the library is going digital at an accelerating pace. In the wake of the downturn of 2009–2010, library budgets seem to have bounced back or are holding steady. However, any new revenues coming in are not going to revive print collections. The emphasis is now overwhelmingly digital, as libraries scramble to meet an ever-increasing demand for digital and online content.

The results of this new research have been segmented into three comparative spending reports by library type: the Academic Libraries Edition, the Public Libraries Edition, and the Special Libraries Edition. The reports are designed to provide deep insight into library budget trends and to help libraries benchmark their spending against their peer group. These three reports are all available now for just $159 each as a PDF download.

According to a report by IBM, online sales from 2012's Cyber Monday increased 30% over sales from the previous year, and 13% of all sales were conducted by mobile devices. But the influx of customers and heavy technical demands on online retailers make the busiest day of online shopping coincide with the greatest instances of unnecessary processing queries, fraudulent transactions, and identity theft.

Anti-Malware Options in 2013
by Donovan Griffin
Viruses happen. So does being infected with spyware, scareware, rootkits, ransomware, keyloggers, and unintentionally being made part of a botnet. ... Luckily, there are solutions to almost any malware-related problem, provided you know what you're facing and what to download.

With that in mind, here are the top anti-virus (AV) performers, sorted by their strengths and who they're useful for.
