Are libraries destined for extinction as more people turn to the Web for their information needs? Or will the role of libraries expand to bridge the gap between information haves and have-nots? How will censorship issues, information overload, and archiving affect libraries in years to come? The immense changes brought by the Internet pose many questions and dilemmas for today's librarians, challenging many fundamental beliefs and practices. This timely work addresses a number of major critical issues facing libraries and our society. Join author Bruce Shuman to explore the challenges and possible solutions in this lively and thought-provoking discussion. A fascinating read for anyone working in the information industry-from library managers and practitioners to faculty and students of library and information science. It is also of interest to researchers and Internet users.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book would probably be of most interest to public librarians since they face many more Internet-related issues and problems than do academic librarians, and Shuman seems to have written his book with public librarians in mind. In addition, it would also be a good resource for the novice Internet user or a student in a Library and Information Science program as an introductory text."-Public Services Quarterly
"A useful overview for practicing librarians...Highly recommended."-American Reference Books Annual
"Shuman's enthusiasm for the Internet and all it has to offer dominates the tone of ssues. That enthusiasm, plus an accessible and informal writing style, almost immediately compels the reader to share in Shuman's "brave-new-world delight.""-Business Information Alert
"Shuman's topical approach makes this book useful to librarians when they need to know the key points of an issue. It would also be useful in a classroom setting to facilitate the discussion of relevant real-world situations. Recommended for library science collections."-Library Journal
