Foundations of Full Text Electronic Information Delivery Systems. Implications for Information Professionals.
Kibirige, Harry M.
Information has become an increasingly valuable commodity. Access to full-text information, containing text, images, and in some cases, sound, is becoming vital to decision-making for organizations as well as individuals. The book covers the following topics: (1) the information marketplace in a cyberculture; (2) the telecommunications foundation for cyberspace; (3) open systems, connectivity, and information access in cyberspace; (4) national and regional networks in the information chain; (5) institutional networks in information access and consumption; (6) transparent gateway interfaces in full-text information delivery; (7) U.S. national information policy initiatives for cyberspace; (8) international interfaces and data flow in cyberspace; (9) the human side of information access; and (10) harnessing the electronic full-text superflow in cyberspace. The book contains a glossary of terms, index, and selected bibliography of 138 sources. (SWC)
