About the Book: The automated scenario of most of the Indian academic libraries has not been worth stating, though UGCs initiative of sufficient funds and development of SOUL software by INFLIBNET paved the way for automating housekeeping operations of college and university libraries. Automation in Indian libraries initially received cold response, nevertheless, with the declining costs of hardware, readily availability of library software and rising curiosity of librarians, academic libraries are observing an incredible shift from traditional to automated system of information access. Nonetheless, the selection of suitable software for automating libraries has been a testing task for Indian librarians. Though many indigenous software were designed, however, only few of them sustained while remaining didnt last long because of their incompatibility with international standards. These limitations of indigenous packages led many libraries to switch over to foreign software. This book presents an entire picture of library automation from its historic to modern period both at national and international level. It highlights the automated library system of two institutions of national importance and one of the first ISO certified university libraries in India. Besides describing the several modules of one of the leading indigenous and international library management package, the book also focuses on user satisfaction on automated systems and the proficiency of librarians in handling these packages for effective automation. An attempt has also been made to highlight several challenges faced by the Indian librarians in automating libraries. It is, thus, expected that this book will serve as a guide for Indian librarians in selecting suitable integrated library management system for effectual and well-organized automated libraries.

DESCRIPTION The contributors to this volume view digital libraries (DLs) from a social as well as technological perspective. They see DLs as sociotechnical systems, networks of technology, information artifacts, and people and practices interacting with the larger world of work and society. As Bruce Schatz observes in his foreword, for a digital library to be useful, the users, the documents, and the information system must be in harmony. The contributors begin by asking how we evaluate DLs -- how we can understand them in order to build better DLs -- but they move beyond these basic concerns to explore how DLs make a difference in people's lives and their social worlds, and what studying DLs might tell us about information, knowledge, and social and cognitive processes. The chapters, using both empirical and analytical methods, examine the social impact of DLs and also the web of social and material relations in which DLs are embedded; these far-ranging social worlds include such disparate groups as community activists, environmental researchers, middle-school children, and computer system designers. Topics considered include documents and society; the real boundaries of a "library without walls"; the ecologies of digital libraries; usability and evaluation; information and institutional change; transparency as a product of the convergence of social practices and information artifacts; and collaborative knowledge construction in digital libraries.

DESCRIPTION The emergence of the Internet and the wide availability of affordable computing equipment have created tremendous interest in digital libraries and electronic publishing. This book is the first to provide an integrated overview of the field, including a historical perspective, the state of the art, and current research. The term "digital libraries" covers the creation and distribution of all types of information over networks, ranging from converted historical materials to kinds of information that have no analogues in the physical world. In some ways digital libraries and traditional libraries are very different, yet in other ways they are remarkably similar. People still create information that has to be organized, stored, and distributed, and they still need to find and use information that others have created. An underlying theme of this book is that no aspect of digital libraries can be understood in isolation or without attention to the needs of the people who create and use information. Although the book covers a wide range of technical, economic, social, and organizational topics, the focus is on the actual working components of a digital library.

About the Book Information seeking and use habits of users' community have witnessed a thespian shift due to the emergence of latest electronic information products and services. Teachers, students, and research scholars in each and every academic system are gradually shifting their choice from conventional use of documents to information online. Therefore, the practicing librarians and information professionals are grappling with the new and innovative standards and strategies to cope up with the changing technologies and the myriad needs of the users as a result of which there has been a great transformation in the philosophy and practice of librarianship of late. The editor has, therefore, tried his best to focus on different key facets of electronic age librarianship by assembling scholarly papers contributed by eminent library scientists and LIS teachers of India and abroad that carry much valuable and authoritative discourse on e-collection building, users' response/feedback to electronic information services at various regions, usage trends, use of internet, library 2.0, social networking, related case studies, and several such contemporary issues. It is believed that, the book will be a treasure for the practicing librarians, information practitioners, faculty, research scholars, and users' community in general and the contemporary electronic information consumers of library and information science in particular.
