    DescriptionEvery day new technology seems to upend the information world, changing the players, policies and practices we knew. Courts and legislatures shape the future. The media puts its spin on all things Internet. Divergent opinions swirl through cyberspace. Amidst this onslaught, how can the busy information professional define issues, answer questions, and present options that synchronize with broader changes? What's needed is a practical, selective, one-stop, organized background file. In "Coyle's Information Highway Handbook", long-time "Netizen" Karen Coyle creates that file, filtering the Intenet noise with a librarian's sensibility. She selects documentary background on the new visions of the information future, organizes it by theme, and puts it in context. Coyle is a California librarian and participant in national forums and debates. In this text she defines such issues as copyright, access, privacy, censorship and the information marketplace. The handbook can be used to bring students or staff up to speed, or to understand your own role in the information derby.
