Summary

Within the last 20 or 30 years, some technologies have mushroomed that have not only revolutionized the discipline and practice of librarianship and information management, but also christened our age as the Information Age. This paper identifies the technological breakthroughs that ushered in the Information Age and are transforming librarianship and information management into a high-tech profession. It also explores the implications of this metamorphosis for research, education, training, and the practice of librarianship and information management. Concluding the paper is a look into a panoramic future perspective in terms of the technologies clustering in the areas of information processing, transfer, and display; and switching speed, gate density, storage density, interface technology, and local-area networking; i.e., implications of the fifth generation computer technology for librarianship and information management.
