Abstract:

The number and types of information sources accessible through the Internet are ever increasing. Billions of documents including text, pictures, sound, and video are readily available for both scholarly and everyday uses. Even libraries and information centers with sizable budgets are having difficulties in coping with this increase. More developed tools and methods are needed to find, filter, organize and summarize electronic information sources. This paper is an overview of a wide variety of electronic information management issues ranging from infrastructure to the integration of information technology and content, from personalization of information services to disintermediation. It discusses the issues of description, organization, collection management, preservation and archiving of electronic information and outlines Davenports ecological model for information management and its components, namely, strategy, politics, behavior and culture, staff, processes, and architecture.
