An international biographical dictionary of national archivists, documentalists and librarians. This new edition furthers the goals of the first in providing a "base for further communication and co-operation among people in national institutions whose efforts are directed to handling information for the purposes of preservation and distribution". Added to it are entries for countries, institutions, and persons not previously represented. It attempts to provide an international perspective on three distinct information professionals and focuses on the national administrators - who they are and where they are - and does not attempt to describe the collections or services of their organizations extensively. Included in the preface is a detailed explanation of the methodology used to collect the research, results of the research, protocol for the listing of elements within the book, and information on how to contact the authors on any developments that have occurred in the field to keep it accurate. It also contains a list of abbreviations, a biographical directory and several appendices.
