Knowledge and Development. Reshaping Library and Information Services for the World of Tomorrow. A Festschrift for Bjorn Tell.
Schwarz, Stephan, Ed.; Willers, Uno, Ed.
This compilation of essays and papers in French and English written in tribute to Bjorn Tell, covers various aspects of library and information services from an international perspective, including university libraries, librarianship, research, technology, reference, and organization of information. Articles focus on Berzelius, father of scientific abstract and reference literature in natural sciences, and such areas of research as information searching and library use in higher education, the effects of computer information services in a federal university, library staff and space utilization, student attitudes toward the library, the library role in higher education, and a comparison of user and documentalist reference work. Discussions of information theory include national cooperation of university libraries, bibliographic references in research communication, professional conduct in research, psychomethodological terms, the role of information professionals and librarians, technological change, and vocabulary structure. A brief review of Tell's career and a bibliography of his publications are included. (CWM)
