A specialist on libraries and library technology, Hicks (education policy, U. of Alberta-Edmonton, Canada) explores the impact of information technologies on how librarians practice librarianship and how they think of themselves and their profession. Among her topics are the role of technology in the historical development of libraries pre-automation, how librarians are using the Internet, the changing face of information literacy, perception of librarians as technology workers, ethics in the age of technological change and its impact on the professional identity of librarians, and public policies as spaces for the articulated professional identity of librarians.
