In this Information Age, the role of libraries in providing for the knowledge needs of all sectors of the population is expanding. The changing needs of information management in our society have sparked an increasing demand for the work of library and information specialists who can organize, manage, and retrieve information from the vast storehouses that exist.
While library and information centers retain their traditional study tables and shelves full of books, increasingly they are being transformed into computerized clearinghouses to accommodate the rapidly evolving information technology. Electronic catalogs, online databases, CD-ROM and DVD products, and the Internet and Web 2.0 provide almost unlimited access to the information people need for lifelong learning, and for both professional and recreational activities.
