Abstract

In Foundations of Information Policy, Paul T. Jaeger, PhD, JD (professor and MLIS program codirector at the University of Maryland) and Natalie Greene Taylor, PhD (assistant professor at the University of South Florida and researcher on young adult information access) endeavor to familiarize library and information professionals, administrators, students, and users with information policy guidelines. Foundations of Information Policy comprises the following chapters, some with different explorations of similar topics, but all containing an all-important noun: “Searching for Information (Policy)”; “What Is Information Policy?”; “Sources of Information Policy”; “Why Study Information Policy?”; “The Development of Information Policy”; “Types of Laws, Policies, and Regulations Impacting Information: Access, Infrastructure, and Management”; “Types of Laws, Policies, and Regulations Impacting Information: Access, Rights, and Responsibilities”; “Information Policy, Information Professions, and Information Institutions”; “The Broader Context of Information Policy”; “Advocacy and Activism in the Information Professions”; and “The Future of Information Policy.” Nancy Kranich’s afterword, “Adventures in Information Policy Wonderland,” concludes the volume.
