What does the Internet have to do with my library?

Abstract:

This chapter discusses the ways that library automation and the Internet changed the careers of librarians in ways that cannot be reversed. It traces the history of the Internet, starting with the 1960s when it was designed as a method for making sure research institutions could continue to communicate even after a nuclear war. By the late 1980s, the Internet had spread to most educational and research institutions and hypertext markup language (HTML) was a well-known but somewhat niche method of storing data, but only Tim Berners-Lee had the imagination to put the two things together and create an information revolution.
