Historical Information Science: An Emerging Unidiscipline

A Supra-disciplinary Book for Interdisciplinary Reading

January 31, 2002, Medford, NJ Information Today, Inc. has announced the publication of Historical Information Science: An Emerging Unidiscipline, a new book by Lawrence J. McCrank, MA, MLS, Ph.D.

This review and bibliographic essay, backed by 6,000 citations, discusses developments in information technology since the advent of personal computing; the discipline of history and its convergence with other disciplines; and both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Its focus is on the access, preservation, and analysis of historical information (primarily in electronic form), and the relationship between new methodologies and instructional media, techniques and research trends in library special collections, digital libraries, electronic and data archives, and museums.

Dr. McCrank is a leading figure in the Information Industry. He is professor of Library and Information Science and Dean of Library and Information Services at Chicago State University, with a purview over the university library, archives, and Learning Resource Center for instructional technology. Studies have identified him as one of a dozen most published academic librarians in North America.
