Editor R.N. Sharma's travels to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East on library assignments have shown him that libraries in those regions are still far behind technologically as compared to the United States and other developed countries. In the his new book, sixteen well-known scholars, library educators, and librarians from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East write about the impact of technology on library collections and services in their countries. Furthermore, three authors from the U.S. contribute articles about Asian, African, and Middle Eastern Collections in the U.S. and the impact of technology on these collections and services. Through this collection of essays, a clear picture of these countries' libraries is given, as well as the ways to bridge the gap between developed and developing countries of these regions.
