Information Science in Transition


Information Science in Transition, Edited by Alan Gilchrist, Facet, 2009

This monograph, recently published by Facet, previously appeared as a special issue of the Journal of Information Science. The book serves as an excellent, contemporary text for Information Science, and we will be using it as a key work on our courses from the next autumn semester. Edited by Alan Gilchrist, the chapters are written by some of the most significant writers, researchers and thinkers within the field today, with the aim of documenting highlights from 50 years of ideas in information science.
