Title: Integrating networked information into library services: Philosophy, strategy, and implementation at Mann Library
Author(s): Garrison, William V.
Subject(s): Networked information Library services
Abstract: Until the relatively recent introduction of computer networks into the academic community, the records of scholarship and the collection of the academic library have consisted primarily of physical materials in print-based formats. The publication, distribution, and use of scholarly works are being transformed by the application of computer networking and information technologies. As Hirshon (1993) observes, "since the invention of the printing press, there has been no change so fundamental to the publishing industry as the advent of electronic and networked information" (p. 1). Advances in computing technology have made it possible for digital formats to subsume nearly all previous formats of publication. Text, still and moving images, sounds, music, computer programs, and statistical data all can be published in a digital format and stored on a computer's magnetic disk. Wide-reaching computer networks make it possible to distribute those digitally formatted materials to thousands of people within just a few minutes. This transformation from printed to networked information is so profound that we are now considered in the midst of a revolution and paradigm shift, in which the very nature of libraries and librarianship is being challenged.
