Résumé / Abstract : From the frontiers of contemporary information science research comes this helpful and timely volume for libraries preparing for the deluge of data that E-science can deliver to their patrons and institutions. The Data Deluge: Can Libraries Cope with E-Science? brings together nine of the world's foremost authorities on the capabilities and requirements of E-science, offering their perspectives to librarians hoping to develop similar programs for their own institutions.

Résumé / Abstract : The essays contained in The Data Deluge were adapted from papers first delivered at the prestigious annual Library Round Table at the Kanazawa Institute of Technology, where E-science has been the theme from the past two annual conferences. Now this groundbreaking work is available in convenient printed format for the first time. The essays are divided into three parts: an overview of E-science challenges for libraries; perspectives on E-science; and perspectives from individual research libraries.

Résumé / Abstract : An essential collection of essays for librarians looking to support E-science programs and capabilities to their institutions.

Résumé / Abstract : Welcome to the exhilarating world of E-science, the new research mode that takes advantage of digital technology to assemble and process vast amounts of data?and to deliver that data via powerful, highly distributed network capabilities. But what does this mean for libraries? How should they rethink and retool themselves in order to provide ongoing access to the growing body of E-science?
