Overview

The literature on the Internet and library and information services has emerged since 1990 and has exploded in 1994 and 1995. Though the amount of material on this topic has increased significantly, little has been done to organize this body of literature. This book selects, organizes, reviews, analyzes, and presents books and articles on the Internet and the library published in 1994 and 1995. An introductory essay provides a comprehensive discussion of the most important issues, trends, and challenges faced by library and information professionals as they respond to the Internet in diverse ways. The annotated bibliography that follows contains more than a thousand entries, which are grouped in topical chapters to facilitate use.

The emergence of the Internet has had a profound impact on society in general and on library and information services in particular. The Internet is widely used in various library and information operations including information selection, organization, preservation, processing, presentation, and delivery. The literature on the Internet and library and information services has emerged since 1990 and covers a great variety of issues. Since 1994, publications on this topic have grown dramatically. While literature before 1994 tends to be primarily descriptive, more recent works are analytical and provide valuable information on the use of the Internet in libraries.

Though the amount of literature on the Internet and library and information services has exploded, little effort has been made to organize this vast body of information. This book is a research guide to the most important books and articles published on the Internet and library and information services in 1994 and 1995. The volume begins with a comprehensive essay that identifies and highlights the issues, trends, and challenges faced by library and information professionals today, as they incorporate the Internet in their work. The annotated bibliography that follows cites more than a thousand books and articles on the Internet and library and information services. The entries are grouped in topical sections to facilitate use, and the extensive indexes further allow the reader to locate specific information.

Liu, a reference librarian at Wright State University, has compiled an excellent bibliography of literature on the Internet and libraries. A continuation of The Internet and Library and Information Services: A Review, Analysis, and Annotated Bibliography (GSLIS, Univ. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, 1995), this work includes entries for 1,161 journal articles, books, dissertations, conference proceedings, and government reports. The coverage is international, but nearly all the works are in English; the majority are journal articles. Liu begins with a comprehensive bibliographic essay on the impact of the Internet on library and information services, providing a thorough overview of the topic. The bibliography itself is divided into four sections-Internet development, the Internet and libraries, Internet resources and services, and the Internet and society. Within each section, entries are arranged by subtopic. Each entry contains a full bibliographic citation, plus a two- to three-sentence descriptive annotation. Indexes by author and subject complete the volume. A useful tool for anyone researching the impact of the Internet on libraries, this is recommended for professional collections and academic libraries serving library science programs.-Janet Crum, Oregon Health Sciences Univ. Lib., Portland
