Summary

The International Encyclopedia of Information and Library Science provides an analysis of the key ideas, topics and terminology of this established, but changing, discipline. Over 500 entries offer wide-ranging coverage - from the information society to library provision in the Caribbean, from multimedia to machine translation - and are written by a team of more than 150 contributors from around the world, including Australia, India, Jamaica, Norway, Pakistan, Singapore and the USA. Alphabetically organized, the Encyclopedia consists of long entries on major concepts which act as a platform for a large number of shorter articles covering specific areas or definitions.

The longer entries are followed by bibliographic references and suggestions for further reading to help the reader to pursue further study. Fully indexed and substantially cross-referenced for ease of access, the Encyclopedia is an invaluable reference tool for anyone involved in the provision of information or communication studies.
