The Internet has been called a revolution, and it is; both in the ways that people and institutions communicate with each other, and in the ways that resources can now be shared. Professionals in the information field share a mandate to enable current and future generations to make use of this technology. From Carnegie to Internet2: Forging the Serial's Future is derived from proceedings of NASIG's 14th Annual Conference, held in June 1999 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This comprehensive guide to the conference proceedings discusses the powerful impact that the current explosion of information technology has had on librarianship and shares information to help you understand and benefit from these new tools. From Carnegie to Internet2 begins with a discussion of metadata--how it is created, how it is used and misused, and how to access it through search engines, including current and future access to electronic serials. Next, you'll encounter a proactive process for looking at what's to come for your library in "Scenario Building: Creating Your Library's Future." As you proceed through From Carnegie to Internet2 you will find fascinating discussions of: full-text databases electronic serials reliable and unreliable Web sources the history of librarianship scholarly publishing by librarians the evolution of distance education . . . and much more! The current information and practical insight in From Carnegie to Internet2 will help you improve your technical skills and prepare you and your library for the 21st century!
