Internationalizing Library and Information Science Education Book Excerpt:

The editors of the book and the contributors challenge library schools to internationalize their curricula at a time when provincial nationalism seems to be prevalent and the profession on the whole is more concerned with the how to rather than the why, and when information technology is being studied almost in isolation from the key social issues of the computer age. The book should be read by all individuals concerned with library education and international programs in particular and the library/information profession in general. Library Quarterly Internationalizing Library and Information Science Education: A Handbook of Policies and Procedures in Administration and Curriculum deals with one of the most critical issues in librarianship today: the complexities involved in operating libraries in a world where the international exchange of ideas, activities, and technologies is a constant force. As defined by editors John F. Harvey and Frances Laverne Carroll, internationalism is the process by which a nationally defined library topic, curriculum, or school becomes responsive to international policies or perspectives. The theme of this volume is this change in perspective.

Global Trends in Library and Information Science Book Excerpt:

A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. A library's collection can include books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, films, maps, prints, documents, microform, CDs, cassettes, videotapes, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, e-books, audio books, databases, and other formats. A library is organized for use and maintained by a public body, an institution, a corporation, or a private individual. Public and institutional collections and services may be intended for use by people who choose not to--or cannot afford to--purchase an extensive collection themselves, who need material no individual can reasonably be expected to have, or who require professional assistance with their research. In addition to providing materials, libraries also provide the services of librarians who are experts at finding and organizing information and at interpreting information needs. Library and Information Science is a profession that is full of people passionate about making a positive change in the world & they tend to be wildly happy about what they do. Librarians not only manage collections, they evaluate, analyze, organize, package, and present information and train people in its use. Librarians bridge the gaps that exist between people, information and technology. In their professional lives, librarians and information professionals work to: design and develop knowledge organization systems, create reader's advisory resources to encourage young students to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning, help scholars locate archival and other resources crucial to their work, Identify sources of assistance in family and personal crises.

International and Comparative Studies in Information and Library Science Book Excerpt:

Comparative studies in information and library science published in the past ten years have reflected a broad spectrum of backgrounds, interests, and issues, but until now services between different countries, Asian nations in particular, have never been gathered or organized into a single source. As demand from researchers, students, directors, and practitioners for pertinent literature continues to grow, there is a definite and increasing need for a focused guide to international and comparative librarianship. International and Comparative Studies in Information and Library Science: A Focus on the United States and Asian Countries consists of eighteen previously published articles divided into seven categories that address issues such as research methodologies; information policy; professional education; information organization; and school, academic, and public libraries. It also features a comprehensive bibliography of related articles, books, proceedings, and other publications in both English and Chinese and four appendixes that list curricula, journal titles, conferences, and websites relating to International and comparative librarianship available at the time of publication. With this important compilation, Yan Quan Liu and Xiaojun Cheng fill an important and previously unmet need. Book jacket.
