thelynxiblog is where I write occasionally, and in a personal capacity, around the field of library and information science. I am a Reader in the Department of Library and Information Science, at City University London, and I am best known for directing our forward-looking Library School, #citylis.
My academic publications focus on the nature of information, and of documents. My current research examines the emergence of ‘immersive’ documents, wherein the reader perceives a scripted unreality as reality. I am also interested in human information behaviour, information resources and the changing definition and scope of library and information science as a discipline.
Broader interests include history of documentation, digital culture, cultmedia & fan fiction, performance, art and architecture.
I describe myself as an academic and a Londoner; I have a background in science, computing, project management, and library & information science.
