Review:

"This very enjoyable history of the changing field of information science does not make the mistake of attempting to provide a single definition for such a multi-faceted term. Instead, Lilley and Trice deal with the changes in the concepts of information science field as paradigms for the entire area. One thus learns of the 'visionaries' in the history of information science--Lilley and Trice see five 'visionaries' whose ideas of information science form those of documentation--and through these visionaries, additional influential people are introduced and their influences acknowledged. Lilley and Trice are cleat writers, making their history enjoyable as well as informative."
--ACADEMIC LIBRARY BOOK REVIEW
"The distinctive feature of this volume is that it emphasizes the achievements of a series of twenty-four individuals, the movers and shakers in information science. Some of the individuals singled out include Vannevar Bush, Eugene Garfield, Mortimer Taube, Frederick Kilgour, Henriette D. Avram, and Richard De Gennaro."
