Book description

Every profession needs an introductory text to its core body of knowledge. This brand new, definitive text from renowned authors Gobinda Chowdhury, Paul F. Burton, David McMenemy and Alan Poulter provides an introduction to librarianship for students and new entrants to the profession. This handbook is the first to give a complete overview of all aspects of professional librarianship in the 21st century, and to offer an up-to-date, authoritative analysis of modern libraries and librarianship. The key areas covered are: libraries and information services: evolution or revolution; information resources and services; information organization and access; library and information users and society; library technologies; library and information management; and, LIS education and training. Each chapter in this user-friendly text features clear learning aims and objectives and a list of revision questions to test and consolidate knowledge and understanding. Mapping onto course content for library and information studies internationally, this handbook is a single source of introductory explanations of library and information concepts for the student. It is also the quintessential primer for new professionals.
