The Early Information Society. Whether termed the 'network society', the 'knowledge society' or the 'information society', it is widely accepted that a new age has dawned, unveiled by powerful computer and communication technologies. Yet for millennia humans have been recording knowledge and culture, engaging in the dissemination and preservation of information. In `The Early Information Society', the authors argue for an earlier incarnation of the information age, focusing upon the period 1900-1960. In support of this they examine the history and traditions in Britain of two separate but related information-rich occupations - information management and information science - repositioning their origins before the age of the computer and identifying the forces driving their early development. `The Early Information Society' offers an historical account which questions the novelty of the current information society. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in the library and information science field, and for sociologists and historians interested in the information society.

Libraries And The Information Society In Germany. Libraries and the Information Society in Germany presents, for the first time, the contemporary German library system not from a library insider's view, but rather from a comprehensively societal perspective. The roles and functions of libraries are analyzed and assessed from this vantage point. The authors - both researchers and practitioners - identify historical developments, describe current trends taking into account sociostructural contexts, and outline options for action. The changes that libraries and library science can embrace and have already embraced in part include, in addition to functional changes and systematic networking, possibly approaching other segments of the information sector or even merging with them. This edition represents a thorough update to the most recent German edition. Several chapters expanded in parts in order to address developments such as Library 2.0, the Semantic Web, Linked Open Data, or Electronic Resource Management.
