Summary:Librarians are experts at selecting, evaluating, and disseminating
the best content in the most appropriate format to meet the needs of
library users. And, new technologies can be invaluable tools in these
efforts. Taking advantage of these technologies does not, however,
change the fundamental mission of libraries everywhere. In this
thought-provoking work, one of the library world's leading thinkers
discusses the transformative effect communications technology has had
on information delivery from past to present to future. By tracing
the transformations, Gorman writes a roadmap for achieving.
