FIRST BOOK IN NEW IFLA SERIES PUBLISHED
IFLA and De Gruyter have launched a new series of books focused on 'Global Studies in Libraries and Information.'
This new English language series will serve as a vehicle for peer-reviewed professional and scholarly
communication about a rapidly changing field. It will provide thoughtful and authoritative
contributions by authors from across the world on the complex global processes involved in the
management and dissemination of information and the role of libraries and other information agencies in
facilitating access to it. The nature of these processes requires practising librarians and
information workers to be aware of the challenges and opportunities that arise internationally. The
series is edited by Professor Ian M. Johnson, former Chair of the IFLA Professional Board, advised by an
international group of experts.
The first title in the series has just been published:
by Kelvin J. Bwalya, and Stephen M. Mutula.
Format: available as an eBook (PDF), Hardcover, Print/eBook, eBook (EPUB)
E-Government is a hot topic. The integration of Information and Communication Technologies into public
service delivery worldwide offers a number of promising opportunities. This text refers in particular
to the benefits derived from ubiquitous access to and delivery of government services to citizens,
business partners and employees. It analyses the fundamental technical and non-technical concepts
that are essential for successful implementation of e-Government in diverse environments, especially
in developing countries. This book is an indispensable resource for both e-Government practitioners
and researchers in that it brings to the fore scholarly scrutiny, scientific debate, and best practice in
e-Government. The author has a background in computer and information science and accentuates the
multi-disciplinary nature of the issues surrounding e-Government.
