The future of digital information provision

David Baker and Wendy Evans

Abstract

In this first chapter, the authors aim to summarise the main themes and issues, successes and opportunities, challenges and threats that the developing information environment – in its broadest sense – encompasses, as evinced and explored in the rest of this book. The topics covered are wide-ranging indeed, but this is a sign of the times, the all-embracing nature of the Internet and the very many challenges that are evident for us all, whether creators, providers or users of information.
