Abstract

In Andrew Weiss’ book <em>Big Data Shocks: An Introduction to Big Data for Librarians and Information Professionals</em>, the author skillfully explores the intersections between libraries and big data by examining how this powerful technology is transforming and impacting (shocking) the world of libraries and information.
