Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This two-volume encyclopedia, edited by Trauth (The Culture of an Information Economy), is a compilation of 213 research articles written by 295 international researchers. It explores the role of gender in all aspects of information technology (IT) and includes a wide array of topics, e.g., women in computer science, IT in developing countries, gender and education, and the influence of IT in society and the workplace. Although some articles provide an overview of a topic, they often describe a specific research project, thus limiting the book's usefulness as a reference source for general topics. Because the articles are arranged alphabetically by title, those on similar subjects are scattered throughout the volumes, forcing the user to scan either the table of contents or the index to locate related information. Each article usually includes a brief background section, a description of future trends, a bibliography, and definitions of key terms and concepts, which sometimes appear in multiple articles with varying definitions (1400-plus terms are defined in total). The articles and terms are supported by more than 4700 references to additional works. Bottom Line Easily accessible to the nonspecialist, this unique resource does give a sense of the breadth of research in this field, but a good database search will accomplish the same goal. However, users might appreciate having the diverse topics brought together in one set. Recommended as a supplemental purchase.
