Blockchain (Library Futures Series, Book 3)
Find in the Library
This book in the Library Futures Series examines blockchain technology, a concept with far-reaching implications for the future of record-keeping. Blockchain uses a distributed database (multiple devices not connected to a common processor) that organizes data into records (blocks) that have cryptographic validation. In this book, Hirsh and Alman build on their ongoing research to examine the use of blockchain and its possible consequences for academic, public, school, and special libraries, as well as the information professionals who sustain those institutions.
