“The Web and the new world of bibliography” is the topic of the seventh annual OCLC/Frederick G. Kilgour Lecture in Information and Library Science that this year features OCLC president and chief executive officer, Jay Jordan.

Vannevar Bush, Henriette Avram and Fred Kilgour were early explorers in library automation who began to use the computer to map the world’s knowledge. Nearly 50 years later, we are starting to realize their vision. Bibliography continues to provide the latitude and longitude for our new knowledge maps. Bibliographic work will be more important than ever in the future as the Web transforms the way people look for and use information.

The lecture was hosted by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and took place in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room of the Wilson Library on the UNC campus.
