In his book “Libraries of the Future,” J.C.R. Licklider predicted that a world network of automated libraries would together support global information requirements, supported by a hodgepodge of different technologies, since there was no integrated theory (Licklider 1965). After more than 40 years, it has become clear that advances in understanding and technology have allowed a theory-based approach to this field that should aid those interested in computer science, information systems, and/or information technology to better grasp the key concepts regarding digital libraries (DLs).
