Summary "This book updates Organising Knowledge in Australia by Ross Harvey, which has proved to be a successful introduction to bibliographical organisation in libraries, both in Australia and overseas. Reviewers and students have attested to the clarity of presentation of complex ideas in a simple and accessible manner. Organising Knowledge in a Global Society strives to maintain these characteristics whilst incorporating recent changes in a field which is currently undergoing significant levels of revision as libraries embrace digital resources and alter their practice in consequence. This new work reflects these current practices, and describes the directions the field is likely to take in the future, by paying particular attention to how libraries and information services provide intellectual access to digital information resources through metadata. Metadata concepts and examples are incorporated throughout the text."--Publisher's website.
