Lost in space: adventures for cybrarians on the electronic frontier

The Internet is creating new yet familiar challenges for librarians. They must deal with issues of access, preservation, documentation, retrievability, and information literacy in new contexts and on vaster levels than previously encountered. Print sources and cultural objects must be converted to digital form as part of the overall process of creating global virtual libraries available on the Internet. It will be increasingly important for librarians to work together with professionals from other disciplines in devising solutions to the new challenges arising in the electronic information universe.
