For more than four decades, this remarkable review has described incredible advances in theory and technology. Editor Cronin (information science, Indiana U.) notes this volume introduces new topics and revisits some familiar territory while retaining focus on the leading edge. In ten articles, contributors describe specialty growth (including similarity methods in chemoinformatics and geographic information science), information organization and discovery (including information architecture, collaborative semantic tagging and annotations systems, and literature-related discovery), information use (including information behavior and the relationship between the layperson and open access), and theory building (including document theory and a critical review of gate keeping). The articles frequently include social implications and long-term effects of new advances.
