Into the future : the foundations of library and information services in the post-industrial era by Michael H Harris( Book )
25 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and German and held by 528 libraries worldwide
In 1962, Harvard sociologist Daniel Bell began distributing and discussing a draft paper in which he introduced the concept of the "post-industrial" or "information" society. This idea has been the subject of intense and often insightful analysis by proponents and critics from a vast range of disciplinary sites. Until now, the library profession has looked at the implications of Bell's ideas without the benefit of knowledge or understanding of the critical debate in the broader context. This book surveys and critically assesses the massive interdisciplinary literature on the post-industrial "information society" and its implications for library and information service in the United States. If library and information scientists are to make critical progress in their attempts to understand the present and plan for the future, they must understand the significant body of literature dealing with the issue, especially the second generation of scholarship that has emerged over the past decade. The book contains the following chapters: (1) The Information Age; (2) Librarians Confront the Post-Industrial Era; (3) State, Capital, and National Information Policy; (4) Neutrality, Objectivity, Information Professionals, and Librarians; (5) Work in the Post-Industrial Era; (6) Conclusion: a Prologema to Library and Information Services in the Post-Industrial Era. Author and subject indices are provided. (Contains 508 references.) (Author/SWC)

Fugitive literature in library science: American library history as a test case. Conference on the Bibliographic Control of Library Science Literature, State University of New York at Albany, Apr. 19-20, 1968 by Michael H Harris( Book )
4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
The interdisciplinary nature of the literature of American library history indicates that much of the best literature in the field is published in journals which do not fit within the familiar confines of "Library Literature." To illustrate the difficulties, a bibliography of 170 items relating to Pennsylvania library history was checked against "Library Literature,""Writings on American History," and "America: History and Life." Only 93 of the 170 entries were located in these sources. The author suggests broadening the coverage of "Library Literature," publication of an annual review of the literature of American library history, and the preparation of a comprehensive bibliography of American library history, as remedies for this lack of coverage. The author concludes that the absence of these essential tools has hindered collection building in the field and has led to considerable duplication of research.
