The Encyclopedia of Information Systems provides essential answers to questions increasingly asked by people in all walks of life. People can no longer claim that information about computer viruses, for example, is unimportant to their work, or that advances in speech recognition and encryption will leave them unaffected. The Encyclopedia is therefore more useful than one might suspect to people well beyond the walls of information systems departments. Offering both general and technical information about major elements, issues, opinions, and key studies, as well as cross-references to related subjects, it captures the dynamic growth and complexity unique to our era.
Major college and university libraries and a wide range of corporations and groups interested in and dependent on information systems. Among industries expected to become increasingly dependent upon information systems and active in interpreting the many issues surrounding their use are: health, medical, biotechnology, military, law enforcement, law firms, justice, libraries, manufacturing, financial services, insurance, communications, transportation, aerospace, energy, and utilities.
