The book begins with capturing the historical developments of information organization and dissemination (IOD) functions in the 20th century till the second decade of 21st century. The transition of the key areas of information organization and dissemination in the last few decades has been enormous, after the large-scale implementation of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in handling information storage and retrieval functions. Of late, the users have become generators of information, not only textual but also multimedia contents that include images, audios, and videos. Usergenerated information becomes a great IOD challenge to the information professionals engaged in designing appropriate solutions for the library and information centres in organizing ever-increasing knowledge for the easy retrieval and dissemination at the later stage. The book is systematically structured with 26 chapters, providing the reader an opportunity to selfnavigating from the conceptual frameworks to information infrastructure as required for the fulfillment of IOD functions.
