This volume presents international research and exhaustive reviews of literature on a range of issues related to the evolving digital environment. Topics addressed include: the educational impact of the digital environment on LIS education curricula and delivery mechanisms; information representation and learning in video games; social semantic corporate digital libraries; the use of E-texts in research projects in the humanities; and information access in e-government environments. Issues surrounding the improvement of library catalogues by emulating web-based search engines, and the extent to which collaborative information seeking is/is not enabled by existing search engines and tools are also explored. With the growing trend for digital-only access to information, this text makes an important contribution in both highlighting problems and challenges, and pointing to pathways for future solutions. Part of the Advances in Librarianship book series, it is a key resource for practitioners, researchers, students and faculty members seeking in-depth literature and solutions to current and emerging issues in library and information science and related fields.
