Latest publication from CIS - Organising Knowledge in a Global Society (rev.ed)

The Centre for Information Studies is proud to announce its latest publication, Organising Knowledge in a Global Society (revised edition).

This book updates the successful first edition, which has been widely used as an introduction to the field of information organisation, both in Australia and overseas. The work reflects current practice and trends, paying particular attention to how libraries and other information services provide intellectual access to digital information resources through metadata. In this revision, the various information organisation components of the Web 2.0 phenomenon are discussed, including social tagging and folksonomies. Examples and case studies have been updated throughout.

This book was written by Philip Hider with Ross Harvey and is available to order on the Centre's website.
