AUTHOR

Rubin, Richard E.

SUMMARY

Richard Rubin has written a completely revised and updated edition of the first textbook - and most widely-used - specifically written to cover the fundamentals of library and information science. Foundations is the most current teaching resource available, covering the practice of librarianship, the place of libraries in the broader information infrastructure, the development of information science, the growth of information technologies, information policy in libraries, intellectual organization of libraries, the mission of libraries from past to present, and ethical aspects and principles between information providers and clients. The various types of libraries (public, academic, school, and special libraries), their internal functions, and the major organizational issues they face are discussed. This second edition provides updates of many critical issues and also includes new topics - digital libraries and reference, information infrastructure, the Web, UCITA, Homeland Security, revised intellectual freedom policy statements, digital rights management, file sharing, MARC21, metadata, and much more - that are important to our profession. The extensive lists of selected readings have been thoroughly updated. Library and information science students and professionals will find the background and concepts they need to meet today's - and tomorrow's - challenges in this new edition.Rubin, Richard E. is the author of 'Foundations of Library and Information Science', published 2004 under ISBN 9781555705183 and ISBN 1555705189.
