Description : Prior to 1964 information scientists entered library schools, they brought with them competencies in relation to information retrieval in subject databases, Subject bibliographic databases and citation indexes provided a major step forward in information dissemination. What is described here is a view of social fields as dynamic and changing. LIS is viewed as a field that started as a multidisciplinary field based on literature, psychology, sociology, management, computer science, etc., which is developing towards an academic discipline in its own right. As a field with its own body of interrelated concepts, techniques, journals, and professional associations, LIS is clearly a discipline. But by the nature of its subject matter and methods, LIS is just as clearly interdisciplinary, drawing on many adjacent fields. What is described here is a view of social fields as dynamic and changing. Library and information science is viewed as a field that started as a multidisciplinary field based on literature, psychology, sociology, management, computer science, etc., which is developing towards an academic discipline in its own right.

A wholly new entry on information systems, and enhanced entries on the information professions and the information society, are key features of this new edition. Topical entries deal with more specific subjects, such as collections management and information services for ethnic minorities.
