The Confluence and Influence of Online Technologies

by John December / my perspective


Special librarians face an electronic information environment that is increasingly a convergence of previously separate media and distributed on networks. At the same time, online information services are increasingly influenced by the Internet, new opportunities in electronic publishing, new Net industries, and new information technologies.


In this speech, I identify the specific challenges I see facing special librarians in the world of information technologies. I suggest strategies to address these challenges through new knowledge, skills, and practices.


Develop practices for information evaluation, development, and use.
