About this book
Public and university libraries are at a crossroads, hard-pressed by competition from Internet search engines, declining budgets and changes in popular culture. Libraries must respond aggressively. Otherwise they will be marginalized by the impact of digital technology on their traditional customer base.Author Ralph Blanchard, drawing on twenty years of experience as an information services entrepreneur, argues that it is irresponsible for librarians to simply turn academic tasks over to search engines, as many do. Instead, libraries should expand digital services and, using the tactics and strategies of successful for-profit information service businesses, reconnect with their customers by promoting themselves as 21st Century information experts.Topics in this wide-ranging study include: The library as a service business Change, risk and unintended consequences The Internet search engine business model Problems with students using search engines The evolution of "ambient information" Music and information technology "Millennials" as library customers Hiring and training library information workers Push and viral marketing strategies for libraries The Digital Challenge for Libraries calls for new initiatives by librarians and for a rekindling of interest in the vital role libraries play in an informed, prosperous and democratic society.

About this book
In recent years, many researchers have studied and simulated many medical problems such as work flow of patient appointment, healthcare architecture, and smart-card for health services. The databases have been advanced to the coordinated databases, called distributed databases. Also the Internet has been enormously researched and used throughout the world. However, those works were done on a dedicated network or Internet that does not store medical information in the pattern of a knowledge-based deductive structure. If we can construct and gather medical information around the Internet together and process it as the collection of knowledge, then it would be possible to bring the intelligence into the Internet and benefit the integrated medical system throughout the world. At the same time, many applications of Intelligent Internet have been proposed for sharing educational, financial and medical resources.

About this book
Beneficial to scholars and students in the fields of media and communication, politics and technology, this book outlines the significant role of search engines in general and Google in particular in widening the digital divide between individuals, organisations and states. It uses innovative methods and research approaches to assess and illustrate the digital divide by comparing the popular search queries in Google and Yahoo in different countries as well as analysing the various biases in Google News and Google Earth. The different studies developed and presented in this book provide various indications of the increasing customisation and popularisation mechanisms employed by popular search engines, which together with “organising the world’s information inevitably also intensify information inequalities and reinforce commercial and US-centric priorities and agendas.Develops an extensive historical investigation of information, power and the digital divideProvides new social and political perspectives to understand search engines in general and Google in particularSuggests original methods to study and assess the digital divide as well as the extent of commercialisation and Americanisation worldwide
