Book Review: Introduction to Information Science

Michael Quinn Dudley

Abstract


Introduction to Information Science by British information science professors David Bawden and Lyn Robinson is an exceedingly ambitious effort to offer an essentially definitive and catholic portrait of the discipline and its many professional manifestations. While exceedingly thorough and well-organized, the book could have benefited from a more critical stance on some of its subject matter. Accessible, comprehensive, far-reaching and offering an impressive overview of the relevant literature, Introduction to Information Science is an outstanding resource that will likely serve as the standard text for the foreseeable future.
