3rd edition (Taylor & Francis) limited to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Texas at Austin fulltext of articles available
The third edition of the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences reflects the growing convergence among the several disciplines that concern themselves with information and the cultural record. In addition to library and information science, the topics covered include:
  • Archives
  • Museum studies
  • Informatics
  • Information systems
  • Knowledge management
  • Records management
  • Document and genre theory
  • Bibliography
  • Social studies of information

The encyclopedia addresses these related disciplines in a way that demonstrates the unities across the fields while also recognizing their uniquely distinguishing characteristics.

Composed of the contributions of major researchers and practitioners and exploring the cultural institutions of more than 30 countries, this major reference presents hundreds of entries extensively reviewed for accuracy. Containing more than 70 percent new material, this edition also includes classic articles of historical or theoretical importance from prior editions.

Access to this resource is funded in part by the Harold Billings Fund for Collection Enhancement.
