Greenwood Publishing Group, 1998 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 120 pages


This book is an exploration of, not an explanation of, information (in its recorded form), and the keepers of those records, the librarians. It presents a model of the way in which recorded messages are generated by and used by people, and it discusses the role of the intermediary-the librarian-whose task is to bring together those messages with people who would make use of them in some way.
