From Gutenberg to the Global Information Infrastructure


Access to Information in the Networked World

MIT Press





Will the emerging global information infrastructure (GII) create a
revolution in communication equivalent to that wrought by Gutenberg, or will the
result be simply the evolutionary adaptation of existing behavior and institutions
to new media? Will the GII improve access to information for all? Will it replace
libraries and publishers? How can computers and information systems be made easier
to use? What are the trade-offs between tailoring information systems to user
communities and standardizing them to interconnect with systems designed for other
communities, cultures, and languages?This book takes a close look at these and other
questions of technology, behavior, and policy surrounding the GII. Topics covered
include the design and use of digital libraries; behavioral and institutional
aspects of electronic publishing; the evolving role of libraries; the life cycle of
creating, using, and seeking information; and the adoption and adaptation of
information technologies. The book takes a human-centered perspective, focusing on
how well the GII fits into the daily lives of the people it is supposed to
benefit.Taking a unique holistic approach to information access, the book draws on
research and practice in computer science, communications, library and information
science, information policy, business, economics, law, political science, sociology,
history, education, and archival and museum studies. It explores both domestic and
international issues. The author's own empirical research is complemented by
extensive literature reviews and analyses.
