Title
Information and the problem of communication

Abstract
Discusses the claim that the information age has given way to a new communication age. Defines information as that which informs, that which conveys meaning, data, or knowledge from one being to another. But if the human information recipient does not receive that information cognitively, the information message is not used to advantage. The user is not informed, but becomes merely a target for the communication ordained by the sender. Considers the trend to evaluate information on the basis of its entertainment value which can degrade information, as information. Libraries must help to ensure that information trasnfer can be effectively, efficiently, and intellectually provided in the midst of the electronic gaming and amusement interest
