Synopsis

This books looks at the role of the information professional in the changing environment in which they now work. Information professionals find themselves in a paradoxical situation: there is increased interest in information and its management, stimulated by the Internet, and, simultaneously, diminished recognition by employers and the public at large of the theory and practice of library and information science. This has resulted in the `invasion' of traditional library and information science territory by `rival' groups, such as information technologists, system analysts, business consultants and even accountants, while information professionals with appropriate skills are ignored or even unemployed. This book provides clarification of the many issues facing both practicing information managers and library and information science students, as well as providing a guide to the new and diverse career pathways available in the field. These tools assist individuals in achieving greater success in their careers, as well as leading to greater recognition of the contribution of library and information services in organisations and society.

Sue Myburgh is currently Program Director of two postgraduate programs - in Knowledge Management and Internet Communication Strategies - at the University of South Australia. She has been involved in many aspects of the theory and practice of Information Management internationally over the last two decades. Amongst various honours received, she was a Fulbright Scholar and has been awarded the Britt Literary Award by the Association of Records Managers and Administrators International.
