In the early 20th century, the distinguished philosopher Alfred North Whitehead observed: "The task of the university is the creation of the future..."

Zoekbedrijf geeft sociaal netwerk voorrang boven complexe zoekopdrachten met Booleaanse operator.
Tot verontwaardiging van vele informatieprofessionals, journalisten en andere 'veelzoekers' heeft Google de optie geavanceerd zoeken veranderd.

The central thesis here is an idea that's become almost cliche: "The Internet changes everything!" The book argues that with the recent revolution in information technologies, it's become possible to do science in entirely new ways. The ability to connect to vast numbers of other researchers, and even ordinary citizens, who might have useful expertise to bring to bear on a scientific problem opens the possibility of solving problems that would be completely intractable in the traditional mode of scientists working alone or in small groups. Web-based scientific enterprises like the Polymath Project and Galaxy zoo have generated impressive scientific results, proving new theorems and discovering new classes of astronomical objects by using the Internet to network together large numbers of people to tackle the problem in a distributed way. These projects are potentially the leading edge of a revolution in the way science is done.
The book consists of over 20 informative chapters by librarians, publishers, and other industry professionals that propose new ideas for reinventing reference collections and interfaces to fit the needs of today's researchers.
