Information Science: Media Implications of the New Means of Information Organization.
Emphasis on the information science field has grown in the past several decades because of five interrelated factors: time scale changes, changes in quantity of available information, changes in nature of information requirements, changes in importance of information sources, and an increase in the number of information processing agencies. The computer, modern communications technology, and new means of information organization and dissemination all have an effect on the traditional concept of a library. The author discusses the implications of these factors of modern technology for the library and information center of the future, the campus-based information systems, the field of information science and education, and the media involved in the field of library and information science.
