9780838908341: Magic & Hypersystems: Constructing the Information-Sharing Library

Taking a penetrating look at the history of information systems, from the past to the present and future, veteran librarian and digital network expert Harold Billings discusses the impact of the information revolution on libraries and information hubs worldwide. Tracing the seminal origins of the Web to the new, borderless access to information, Magic and Hypersystems is a powerful meditation on how libraries can not only fit into the digital information flow but also capitalize on their role in it. Billings connects the dots from sixteenth century knowledge organization - based on magic, image-based memory - to global information systems of today as embodied in the twenty-first-century relational library model where information flow is boundless. Billings believes the profession stands at the cusp of a tremendous opportunity - to construct a global, relational library that will provide a rich base of information for all knowledge seekers. He encourages libraries to build new structures and alliances that will equip them to connect their users to the richest possible information sources. He examines the key issues of the day, such as: - The future of library education and libra

About the Author:

Billings is the director of General Libraries at the University of Texas,Austin.

From Library Journal:

This is an interesting collection of mostly previously published articles that trace the growth of information retention and sharing from the development of "magic"-based information-retention techniques in the 16th century to modern times. The goal of librarian and digital network expert Billings here is to map the developments of networked information systems and relate these changes to libraries. As director of General Libraries at the University of Texas, Austin, he has been instrumental in guiding the library into the digital future over the past 25 years. His essays challenge librarians to accept needed change and allow it to form the library of the future. One of the most striking things about his collection is that many of the issues he discussed when the articles were first published are still relevant, for example, the future of library education, new models of resource sharing, and linking technologies. Recommended for library science and professional reading collections.
