9781856044653: Introduction to Digital Libraries

Recent developments in IT, especially the World Wide Web, have led to the creation of a number of digital library research projects in the UK, USA and elsewhere. This phenomenon is designed to bring a shift in the ways we create, access and use information. The design and development of digital libraries depend on computer, communication and other technical skills, and the dream of successful digital libraries leading to a global digital environment can only be fulfilled when enough practitioners have the skills to design, build and manage them.
