From the Publisher"Lesk is the senior and most knowledgeable author in the field. His dry humor and clear explanations, combined with his uncanny ability to uncover and address key ideas and problems, make this a "must read."
—Edward A. Fox, Ph.D., Professor of Computer Science, Virginia Tech
"Michael Lesk does for digital libraries what David Macaulay does for every day objects: he lucidly depicts how things work. In the digital world the ways things work is necessarily always in flux. In this second edition, Michael Lesk has done a masterful job of making us feel more at home with this flux."
—Michèle Valerie Cloonan, Dean and Professor, Graduate School of Library & Information Science, Simmons College
"Lesk's insights are distilled from a lifetime of pioneering activities in information retrieval, text processing and digital libraries, culminating in a most creative period at the National Science Foundation. He has written a book that brings these insights alive with well-chosen examples: facts and figures, tables and graphs. Digital libraries have not replaced books. This book illustrates why."
—William Y. Arms, Professor of Computer Science and Co-Director of Information Science, Cornell University
