Title: Humanizing information technology: Cultural evolution and the institutionalization of electronic text publishing
Author(s): Day, Mark Tyler
Subject(s): Electronic texts
Abstract: This paper examines the process by which new academic library services are created in response to a changing academic ecology with reference to a particular case study that of Indiana University's still developing Library Electronic Text Resource Service (LETRS). It explains the recent rise of interest in electronic texts as a product of social forces generated by the evolution of industrial capitalism. This evolution has resulted in the creation of complex social organizations and information technologies designed to control the complex processes of industrial expansion. We are only now beginning to develop adequate scientific explanations of this evolution.
