A tablet personal computer (tablet PC) is a portable personal computer equipped with a touchscreen as a primary input device and designed to be operated and owned by an individual. The term was made popular as a concept presented by Microsoft in 2001. But now many Tablet and PC companies new products will be launching in the last quarter of this year. Now Ipad, Olivepad, Galaxypad is available in market with latest OS platform like Android, 3G or 4G support, GPS etc.
Tablet PC are a high-technology which one can access to internet to find information and so on, while books are something written by an author to pass on knowledge or facts and so on. In this essay I am going to discuss about the beneficial of computers and books, and is computers really a replacement for book. No buddy know, but intresting.
Computer technologies such as hypertext and the Internet remove the geographical constrains of print media and allow for a new method of distributing and reading documents. Books will always be affordable, concrete sources of information, but the next ten years will bring computers that are faster to access, as convenient to use, and that hold more information than books. With the Internet, one piece of information is accessible from millions of computers around the world. A researcher may need to travel no further than her computer to find a document in a virtual library 3,000 miles away. As the Internet continues to grow, those doing research will have a greater advantage by acquiring Internet connectivity than by searching far and wide for books.
A book has much greater authority than information conveyed by a computer. By the time a book goes to press, it has been through the hands of the author, publisher, designer, and the editor. Information on the computer does not necessarily go through such a rigorous selection process. With very little effort, anyone can publish a document on the Internet; anyone can be an author. As a result, there tends to be a lower signal-to-noise ratio on the Internet.
In addition, unlike computers that gives out radiation. To add on, scientists have given a statement that radiation an cause diseases to human and it harms male’s reproductive cells. Therefore they think that books are healthier than computers. I agree with what the scientists have stated, no matter what health is still the first priority.
Computers will never completely supplant books, but we may soon rely on them more than print media. Computers will meet our needs for information storage and distribution, and will be a convenient way to hold more information in less space than today’s book.
Avanti Library Systems release Nova, a semantic mapping system that can be used in a variety of contexts. It is initially being developed to be used as an online catalog. However, the Nova software is very general and can also be used to implement topic maps, content management systems, complex data structures such as MARC records, or any application that needs to dynamically map and query relationships among sets of objects.
Nova can be used in several ways. It has a scripting language used to manipulate and query semantic maps. It will also have native client/server capabilities, and provides a Java API for integration with other applications. At its core is a data structure that stores a semantic map. Nova is ultimately a new way of looking at semantic data.

S. R. Ranganathan, known as the “the father of library science in India,” and respected by librarians all over the world, proposed five laws of library science. Many librarians worldwide accept them as the foundations of their philosophy (e.g. Koehler et al., 2000)
These laws are:
The Five Laws of Library Science are some of the most influential concepts in that field. Since they were published in 1931, these five laws “have remained a centerpiece of professional values…” (Rubin 2004). These basic theories of Library Science continue to directly affect the development of this discipline and the service of all libraries.
S. R. Ranganathan’s early education was of a mathematic background. This systematic way of thinking, he later applied to his work in library science, most notably his work on library classification and administration. (Indian Statistical Institute Library, et al. 2007) “From the middle of the nineteenth century, librarians in the west felt the need and started emphasizing the importance of enhanced services to library patrons. Formulation of the Five Laws of Library Science at long last, provided a solid and lasting foundation in this direction.” (Kabir 2003)
