E-Discovery Tools and Applications in Modern Libraries

Book Description

Technology has revolutionized the ways in which libraries store, share, and access information. As digital resources and tools continue to advance, so too do the opportunities for libraries to become more efficient and house more information. E-Discovery Tools and Applications in Modern Libraries presents critical research on the digitization of data and how this shift has impacted knowledge discovery, storage, and retrieval. This publication explores several emerging trends and concepts essential to electronic discovery, such as library portals, responsive websites, and federated search technology. The timely research presented within this publication is designed for use by librarians, graduate-level students, technology developers, and researchers in the field of library and information science.
