Jeffrey A. Knapp - Associate Librarian and Foster Communications Librarian, Penn State Altoona

Book Title: The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood

Author: James Gleick

Book Description:

Gleick's work takes an amazingly broad view of the information landscape that helped me to really understand the broad scale of information--the way we transmit it, store it, and retrieve it. It places it all in such a great historical context, and, as a librarian, helped me to get a better handle on the role I can play in the overall enterprise of knowledge retrieval and creation.
