dc.description.abstract In a world becoming increasingly connected electronically the divide between people working in different at different levels, in different departments, organizations, and countries are melting away. It is becoming easier to "cross" political, economic and national borders. However, to participate in this global workplace, workers will need: local information and technological infrastructures access to global connectivity at reasonable speed and reliability the skills required to work digitally the attitudes needed to work in an increasingly ambiguous, paradoxical, and complex work environment access to pertinent and affordable information appropriate management structures to support virtual work and, most importantly, leaders with vision and an understanding of what motivates this new type of worker This monograph addresses all of these issues in the context of the development of digital libraries. To develop the software, digital content, human resources and services needed for successful digital library projects require innovation and working in new ways. The chapter authors were drawn from a variety of information technology situations. They provide, first, an understanding of the broad concepts and principles underlying the global electronic information economy. Secondly, the skills needed to develop digital library projects and detailed examples of successful projects, and finally, ways to integrate and deliver a variety of digital information and educational services based on digital library content and functions. en_US
