This book offers a series of arguments, critical analyses, and case studies on how today's information professionals/librarians can sustain their strong traditions of best practices in community government information services, organization, access, and preservation. Building on their paper and print traditions the chapters will offer several ways information professionals build the next century of theory and effective government information expertise, and take advantage of new ways to become civically engaged. The chapters do not just react in a tactical (or operational) fashion. Rather, they clearly acknowledge that all aspects of government information services and organization will expect new foundations of theory and technique. They will also challenge readers to build a better narrative on how librarians, archivists, and other information researchers can shape, and be shaped by, the Internet's digital revolutions especially in their roles as civic stewards/advocates critical to the successful sustainability of public information.
