About this product
- DescriptionWhether termed the 'network society', the 'kwledge society' or the 'information society', it is widely accepted that a new age has dawned, unveiled by powerful computer and communication techlogies. Yet for millennia humans have been recording kwledge and culture, engaging in the dissemination and preservation of information. In 'The Early Information Society', the authors argue for an earlier incarnation of the information age, focusing upon the period 1900-1960. In support of this they examine the history and traditions in Britain of two separate but related information-rich occupations - information management and information science - repositioning their origins before the age of the computer and identifying the forces driving their early development. 'The Early Information Society' offers an historical account which questions the velty of the current information society. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in the library and information science field, and for sociologists and historians interested in the information society.
