9780122272400: Encyclopedia of Information Systems: 4 Volume Set

"The Encyclopedia of Information Systems" provides essential answers to questions increasingly asked by people in all walks of life. People can no longer claim that information about computer viruses, for example, is unimportant to their work, or that advances in speech recognition and encryption will leave them unaffected. The Encyclopedia is therefore more useful than one might suspect to people well beyond the walls of information systems departments. Offering both general and technical information about major elements, issues, opinions, and key studies, as well as cross-references to related subjects, it captures the dynamic growth and complexity unique to our era. Key features of this title are as mentioned below. It offers the only major encyclopedic examination of information systems; there are no competitors. Its articles begin with easily understandable concepts and become increasingly sophisticated, satisfying the needs of all readers. Its articles emphasize information that will not quickly go out of date. Each article contains an average of 8 graphs and 8 tables illustrating its important points. This title contains approximately 220 separate articles, all original contributions commissioned for this work. It includes approximately 700 figures and tables within the text; more than 2,000 glossary entries explain key terms, 'further reading' lists appear at the end of each entry, and an extensive cross-referencing system links related articles.

Review:

"So much of our technology scene overwhelms us as we try to keep up-to-date or just remember "why" and "how" we got here, that the Encyclopedia of Information Systems is certainly a welcome resource. I was impressed by the comprehensive handling and readability of the material. I like the approach of providing summaries first and then diving deeper. The complimenting idea of concluding with pointers to landmark papers for follow-up for further reading/study is well conceived." -Dr. Michael Paige, VP Xerox and Director PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) "A broad, comprehensive work spanning the whole of Information Systems, including some articles by experts in their respective fields." -Dr. Peter Norvig, Director of Machine Learning, Google, Inc. "With numerous well written entries from a range of information science disciplines, the Encyclopedia of Information Systems is destined to find its place among the very best reference works of its kind." -Professor James Castiglione, Brooklyn College, CUNY "This is an impressive work that brings together a wealth of information that was previously scattered in many publications. It is well worth the price and is recommended for all major university libraries." -H. Robert Malinowsky, Manager of Collections Development and Reference, University of Illinois at Chicago Library, in E-STREAMS "Long-time readers know that I am a fan of Dr. Hossein Bidgoli, surely one of the most prolific creators of encyclopedias in history! Since the early 1980s, Professor Bidgoli has been a star contributor to the development of information technology teaching."--Network World
