Fourth edition continues this series with an extensive focus on the aspects of library and information sciences that have been heavily impacted by the adoption and reliance on online information distribution. This focus is reflected in the inclusion of numerous new entries such as digital preservation, altmetrics, web-scale disovery services, demand-driven acquisitions, and global open knowledge bases. The expanded use of the Internet for information has led to new treatment of traditional LIS topics such as resource description and access (RDA) that reflects the adoption of new standards for cataloging. Both current editors are academic research librarians and focused heavily on addressing gaps in the encyclopedia related to academic research information while still relying on the structure established in earlier editions. This edition also expands the number of entries for named cultural and information entities that did not appear in previous editions. - From back cover.
