    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Constant developments in information technologies make it necessary to take a detailed look at the subject of ‘Information and Society’. In recent years many scholars and politicians have considered the question of how information is and should be distributed. The volume looks, for the first time, at the phenomenon of information justice from the perspective of various disciplines, thus defining a new field of interdisciplinary research. It deals with matters of accessibility and information ethics, access to information for various elements of the population, as well as a number of practical areas, with regard to the fundamental approaches to the (just) distribution of information (libraries, electronic media).

    Supplementary Information

    Details

    Die Begriffe ‚Informationsgesellschaft' und ‚Age of Access' suggerieren die problemlose Zugänglichkeit von Information. Auch das deutsche Grundgesetz fordert dies für alle Bürger. Doch Information ist in der Realität in vielerlei Hinsicht unzugänglich - physisch, wirtschaftlich, intellektuell, sprachlich, politisch, technisch. Diese neue Buchreihe bringt Wissenschaftler und Praktiker zusammen, um die verschiedenen Dimensionen der Unzugänglichkeit auszuloten sowie Prinzipien und Techniken ihrer praktischen und gesellschaftlichen Überwindung aufzuzeigen.
