dc.description.abstractOnce upon a time there was a zoo librarian who wanted to introduce the people she served at the Zoo to the Internet and to create an institutional Web page so that everyone could have access to ALL the information they needed to do their jobs from their desk-top computers. She thought that if she were able to accomplish this amazing feat, the people in her organization would come to realize the profound value of accurate, timely information and the importance of libraries and librarians would come to be a universally acknowledged truth. (You wonà ¢ t be surprised to learn that Hans Christian Andersen and the Brotherà ¢ s Grim were among her favorite authors). The story I am about to relate is one of unbelievable political maneuvering and intrigue. It continues to this day, and I relate this cautionary tale in the hope that other innocent, wide-eyed librarians may be able to anticipate and even avoid some of the pitfalls and ogres that appear when the magic words à ¢ Web siteà ¢ are uttered.en
