Editorial Reviews

Review

The expert observations presented in these essays would be of most benefit to the governments and libraries in the economically underdeveloped nations that are the focus of the essays... (College & Research Libraries)

a useful addition to the literature on comparative librarianship...a very important information source... (American Reference Books Annual)

...Sharma and his contributors have crafted a work that I highly recommend to students of international librarianship, information technology, and librarianship in the developing world. This text can serve as a useful introduction to the history, challenges, and opportunities created by the introduction of IT to library collections in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. (The Library Quarterly)

...this is a fascinating volume....Recommended for library science collections and larger academic libraries. (Library Journal)

Introduced to libraries and users in the Western world during the second half of the 20th century, information technology is slowly making its way to less-developed countries. This volume contains 13 contributions from scholars, library educators, and librarians in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, each describing the impact of technology on library collections and services in their countries. It concludes with an essay by Sharma (Monmouth U. Library) that identifies major barriers to introducing information technology in these regions and suggests some possible solutions. (Reference and Research Book News)
