Notes

Abstract: The synergies of current trends are shaping creation, discovery, access, use and reuse of information resources. The digital landscape has exploded, providing greater access to a larger portion of the world’s population since the creation and domestic spread of the internet. This new frontier has created a surplus of information and a need for increased organization. The variety of platforms, media types, and metadata criteria available for organization require innovative approach and methodology development for efficient information organization. Automation practices are enhancing, but have not reached peak efficiency for indexing and abstracting processes. Social networking tools, such as social tagging in image databases, have shown increasing success with the creation, distribution and sharing of information. Web 2.0 is influencing how involved users can be in classification and indexing processes. The future of indexing and abstracting will require continuous facilitation of online content management in varying contexts due to the increase in available resources and digital storage capabilities.
This proposal discusses and provides an overview of some of the emerging trends and argues that indexing and abstracting services are still the path to rediscovering and effectively accessing knowledge in the digital era. Users’ needs, digital library developments, information access methods and indexing techniques will need to be routinely assessed as time passes to maintain effective information delivery.
