Designed to introduce LIS students to the ever-changing world of
modern libraries and information centers, this text provides an
important overview of libraries in the era of electronic
information. It helps students build necessary core knowledge in
such areas as electronic dissemination of information, the impact
of the Internet on libraries, the changing responsibilities of
library professionals, the new paradigm for evaluating information,
and characteristics and functions of today's library personnel.
Each chapter revolves around a pertinent topic: the history of
libraries, job opportunities, collections, preparing materials for
use, circulation, reference service, ethics in the information age,
job search basics, and the Internet. References and relevant books,
Web sites, and publications at the end of every chapter point to
further resources. Additional information--such as policies, the
library bill of rights, the code of ethics, and the freedom to read
statement--is supplied in the appendixes.
