Nonprofits & Technology:  Emerging Research for Usable Knowledge

Authored by Michael Cortés and Kevin M. Rafter, this book identifies the ways that new information and communication technology both help and hinder nonprofit effectiveness. The book establishes a body of dependable research on the subject, compiling the resources needed to make better technology-adoption and management decisions in the nonprofit sector.

The table of contents looks promising, but I guess, at this stage, that I’d rather read a publication about this subject in the shape of a handbook, the way Ellis and Cravens did in The Virtual Volunteering Guidebook. And I think practitioners are, too, in the need of something practical that tells them, step by step, specific solutions to specific problems, such as free software applications, database creation and managing, etc. Of course, just my opinion.
