Overview for Library Science and Information Technology Misuse

The technology revolution has brought many changes to the way librarians and library staff manage their day and provide information to users. Up until ten years ago, libraries were book focused institutions. There were just print card catalogues, online vendor databases had barely become tools and in the librarian's arsenal to answer questions, the internet as we know it now was still years away from practical use.

The role of the academic librarian in the information age is to promote access to appropriate and accurate information to serve the needs of users. This has been the librarian's mission for generations. However, the information age has made this mission much more challenging and complex.

This book attempts to describe the uses and the misuses of information technology in libraries. It is hoped that it will provide some value addition to the present and anticipated literature in this field.
