Title: Exploring the information landscape: the digital library in context
Abstract:

Most studies of digital library use put information seeking at the centre. In this talk, I will present an alternative perspective: that of the person, who may be actively seeking, or may simply be encountering information on their travels through the information landscape. The “information journey” is a way of framing our understanding of both directed seeking and encountering. I will locate that within an “information landscape” that includes physical and digital information resources, other people and environmental factors. Digital libraries play important roles within this landscape. This perspective allows us to embrace information phenomena such as serendipity and meaning making as well as individual and collaborative information seeking within the same framework. It also helps in thinking about design solutions to information challenges. The talk will draw on studies of information interactions across a variety of contexts.
