Technological Advances and Information Education 1982-2007: Some Perspectives
Guy, Fred
Education for Information, v25 n1 p63-72 2007
The paper considers technological advances in relation to information education over the 25 years of existence of the journal, "Education for Information." Some key developments before 1980 such as the appearance of MARC and library co-operatives are mentioned along with key post-1980 developments including networking, the World Wide Web, and digital image capturing. The introduction of these developments into the National Library of Scotland is briefly described. Reference is made to publications on activities arising from the sponsorship of research in information studies by the (then) British Library Research and Development Department in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Relevant articles in "Education for Information" are mentioned and particular reference made to the thematic issue on the Internet published in 1995. It is suggested that the editors should consider creating thematic issues on digital libraries and future online catalogues.
