To Greater Heights: Studies in Library and Information Science and E-Glossary

L.S. Ramaiah (Author)
Synopsis This book is a collection of articles written during a period of last few years. These are a mixed bunch providing the trends in the fields of public, academic and special libraries. In tune with the motto, ‘information to all’ that there should be ‘right to information to all’. Democratic governments have an obligation to see that information is provided to all with out any discrimination at all levels of society. Access to information should be enshrined in the fundamental rights of our constitution. Further, these articles debate and discuss issues like the bibliometric study of research work, use of computers, the Internet, barcode practices, interface of men and machines and maintenance of computers in libraries. In the decades to come sophisticated robots like Ananova may manage most of the counter transactions, easing out library staff from many routine duties. Libraries and information centres can work round the clock without staff. Finally, this book provides a good glossary of E-terms with their meaning and explanation which are used by the LIS professionals in the context of extensive use of computers in libraries. These terms are useful to the working professionals as well as to the new entrants into the profession. This title provides a useful reading to professionals at all levels since it rolls out some new ideas and thoughts. It is a good addition to the library literature.
