Abstract

The schools of information studies of today place training for work in distributed computing environments at the core of the curriculum. However, this was not the case ten years ago. Looks, therefore, at the current role of traditionally trained librarians. Focusses on the experience of the University of Michigan Library’s Documents Center, and how the collection development principles learned for selection of traditional library media apply today to selecting Internet materials.
