Brief description

Constantly we are being told that ours is an `information age? and that we are living in an `information society?, but what exactly do these terms mean? How has society, at local, national, and international level, changed as a result of the advent of computers and the impact of information and communications technology (ICT)? The aim of this module is to discuss these issues and many others; issues which are relevant to us all, not just as members of the information profession, but also as private citizens.
