The impact of information technology on management and organization: the case of Hong Kong Polytechnic University Library
Briefly describes the recent history and development of information technology in Hong Kong Polytechnic University Library in all areas of operation. The Library installed the Data Research integrated online library system in 1989, and in early 1991 reorganized its management structure in order to respond more quickly and efficiently to the demands of the information revolution. Taking the revolution in information technologies as an exemplar, analyses the effects such fundamental changes have had on the management and organization of the Polytechnic University Library, and the positive responses made by professional librarians to the challenges facing the library service. In particular, focuses on the management of human resources to meet the burgeoning growth and development of electronic systems. How can senior library staff be organized most effectively to exploit the new technology to the benefit of their users? What practical steps can be taken to train academic staff and students in the availability and use of systems?
