Awarded the ASIS&T most sensible details technology e-book Award offered through the yankee Society for info technological know-how and expertise. The award is given to the writer whose booklet is judged to have made the main striking contribution within the box of data technology in the course of the calendar 12 months previous the ASIS&T annual meeting.

Will the rising worldwide info infrastructure (GII) create a revolution in verbal exchange similar to that wrought through Gutenberg, or will the outcome be easily the evolutionary model of present habit and associations to new media? Will the GII enhance entry to info for all? Will it change libraries and publishers? How can desktops and data platforms be made more straightforward to take advantage of? What are the trade-offs among tailoring info structures to consumer groups and standardizing them to interconnect with structures designed for different groups, cultures, and languages?

This booklet takes an in depth examine those and different questions of expertise, habit, and coverage surrounding the GII. subject matters coated comprise the layout and use of electronic libraries; behavioral and institutional elements of digital publishing; the evolving position of libraries; the lifestyles cycle of making, utilizing, and looking details; and the adoption and model of data applied sciences. The booklet takes a human-centered point of view, targeting how good the GII matches into the day-by-day lives of the folk it truly is speculated to benefit.

Taking a different holistic method of info entry, the ebook attracts on learn and perform in computing device technological know-how, communications, library and data technology, info coverage, company, economics, legislation, political technology, sociology, heritage, schooling, and archival and museum stories. It explores either household and overseas matters. The author's personal empirical study is complemented via wide literature reports and analyses

Sample text

Some people never will have access to a GII, nor will all materials ever be in electronic formats. Multiple forms and hybrid forms of information institutions and services will be required. Thus, we must address not only questions of what is a library but also what “literacy” and “seek and assess knowledge” mean in this environment. These are but a few of the many questions to be discussed by policy makers and by those creating, designing, managing, and using information resources and systems. Scholarly and professional interest in “digital libraries” grew rapidly in the 1990s.

Others include energy, transportation, telecommunications, banking and finance, transportation, water systems, and emergency services. Because each of these infrastructures is increasingly reliant on information technologies, they are more interconnected and interdependent. Their interdependence means that more and more aspects of daily life depend on the emerging global information infrastructure. 2 Is It Digital or Is It a Library? Digital Libraries and Information Infrastructure If a global information infrastructure can link together electronic resources, whether public or private, large and small, located around the world, will it serve as a “global digital library”?

Is digital library research and practice a definable area of interest, or has “digital library” merely become an umbrella term for a wide array of information and technology projects? Causal relationships are notoriously difficult to establish. In view of the rate at which the trees of digital library research and practice are growing, 1. The Digital Library Initiative (1994–1998) was jointly funded by the National Science Foundation’s Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate, the Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Computing Systems Technology Office and Software and Intelligent Systems Technology Office, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
