The developments in the use of computer systems in libraries from 1966 to date have been great. Developments in the use of computer-based library systems have progressed by leaps and bounds in recent years. Computers in Library and Information Science (LIS) research have been an object of study or a tool for research for at least fifty years, but how central are computers to the discipline now? This book highlights the problem that research topics relying upon computers, such as most bibliometrics, at some stage may rarely find the development of computer technologies to be directly relevant to research goals and so computers may become part of the background of the area rather than key to driving new research.
