The book s fourteen chapters begin with The Impact of Information in Society and Fundamental Concepts of Information ; look at The Information Professions and The Impact of Information Cultures and Societies ; and conclude with Information Ethics and Information Futures.

Expansions include two whole new chapters, one on user behavior and the second on information, power, and society; five other chapters have been substantially expanded. In addition, the authors have added two new features: A Learning Guide precedes each chapter and an Information Idea draws a;ention to the application of the chapter s concepts in the real world.
