In what I believe to be one of the most important books to be published in the field of information science, Dr. Borgman astutely addresses many of the critical issues facing the emerging global information infrastructure and notes that there are more questions than answers. The author, a preeminent scholar in this field, has provided a framework from which a user of the Internet, or, indeed, anyone interested in what is one of the most powerful systems to be created by man, can begin to appreciate the implications of this system. Ignorance is only bliss in the short run.
Published in 2000 and winner of the American Society for Information Science and Technology's 2001 Best Book Award, this book is current, timely and uniquely relevant. As an attorney involved with intellectual property rights and as an engineer who began working with computers in 1962, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
