Abstract
Introduction to Information Science and Technology, edited by Charles H. Davis and Debora Shaw, provides a very clearly worded text a very clearly worded text introducing readers to concepts in information science and technology. The book also offers readers background information and theoretical foundations for many of the topics presented. Davis and Shaw edited this book from information compiled on an American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) Wiki from over 80 contributors. This book was written with the desire to provide a brief introductory overview of the information science profession. As such, many topics are covered, but not in enough detail to offer more than a cursory view into the topic. The strength of the book is its readability. Although the content may be targeted at students in introductory courses on information science and technology, librarians or information science professionals unfamiliar with topics covered in this work may find it helpful as a refresher text.
