Libraries and Information Science
Posted by Brian on Thursday October 13, @07:44AM from the Does it really matter dept.

I sometimes try and think about what we're trying to accomplish in libraries. I came upon this passage from the Wikipedia under Information Science

Information science is primarily concerned with the structure, creation, management, storage, retrieval, dissemination and transfer of information. Information science also includes studying the application of information in organizations, on its usage and the interaction between people, organizations and information systems. Within information science attention has been given in recent years to human computer interaction (HCI) and to the ways people generate, use and find information.

I look at this a think this is exactly what we should be doing. Are we?
