Prior to 1964 information scientists entered library schools, they brought with them competencies in relation to information retrieval in subject databases, Subject bibliographic databases and citation indexes provided a major step forward in information dissemination. What is described here is a view of social fields as dynamic and changing. LIS is viewed as a field that started as a multidisciplinary field based on literature, psychology, sociology, management, computer science, etc., which is developing towards an academic discipline in its own right. As a field with its own body of interrelated concepts, techniques, journals, and professional associations, LIS is clearly a discipline. But by the nature of its subject matter and methods, LIS is just as clearly interdisciplinary, drawing on many adjacent fields. What is described here is a view of social fields as dynamic and changing. Library and information science is viewed as a field that started as a multidisciplinary field based on literature, psychology, sociology, management, computer science, etc., which is developing towards an academic discipline in its own right. The present research-oriented book entitled ‘Current Trends in Library and Information Science’ is devised with the sole intention to highlight modern libraries from different technical perspectives. As such essays of varied nature pertaining to the library and information science are compiled in this volume. The publication is meant for library professionals. Contents: • Digital Research Tools in Library • Analysis of Information Systems in Library • Trends and Issues in Information Science • Online Information Retrieval • Main Elements of Electronic Libraries • Guidelines for Software and System Selection • Libraries and the Internet • Electronic Technologies for Libraries • Resource Sharing through Internet

In this fascinating book, the author traces the careers, ideas, discoveries, and inventions of two renowned scientists, Athanasius Kircher and Galileo Galilei, one a Jesuit, the other a sincere man of faith whose relations with the Jesuits deteriorated badly. The Author documents Kircher’s often intuitive work in many areas, including translating the hieroglyphs, developing sundials, and inventing the magic lantern, and explains how Kircher was a forerunner of Darwin in suggesting that animal species evolve. Galileo’s work on scales, telescopes, and sun spots is mapped and discussed, and care is taken to place his discoveries within their cultural environment. While Galileo is without doubt the “winner” in the comparison with Kircher, the latter achieved extraordinary insights by unconventional means. For all Galileo’s fine work, the author believes that scientists do need to regain the power of dreaming, vindicating Kirchner’s view.
