The Library and Information Professional's internet companion

A. Poulter, D. Hiom, D. McMenemy

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This desk reference book opens with snapshot illustrations of instant messaging and portals to show just what can and is being achieved at the heart of service provision in the 21st century library. Service development in the information society involves not merely the provision of access, but also the creation of content. Understanding the possibilities of the Internet fully is crucial for the LIS professional in developing applications that would have been impossible without this new technology. This book is an essential companion to enable information practitioners to do just that and is key reading for LIS students.
