About this title


This work covers the emergence and forty years of growth of information science. It features people, successful trends, and the relationships of information science to library science, documentation, and new technologies. This book also covers the behavior of libraries and information science institutions, and it reports on research from universities and other research centers. This work is a valuable reference to students and professionals in library and information science.


"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."
"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."
