thelynxiblog is my personal website, home to my thoughts around the edges of information and documentation, and the intersection between analogue and digital. I am a Reader in Library & Information Science at City University London, where I established our forward-looking Library School, #citylis, which I have directed for nearly a decade.

My academic publications focus on the nature of information and documents. My current research anticipates the emergence of ‘immersive’ documents, wherein the reader perceives a scripted unreality as reality. I also have papers on human information behaviour, information resources, and the changing boundaries and definitions of library and information science as a discipline.

I am co-author of Facet’s best selling text “Introduction to Information Science“, and the author of “Understanding Healthcare Information“.

Broader interests include the history and theory of documents and documentation, digital libraries, digital culture, art, cultmedia & fan fiction, and fashion.

I describe myself as an academic and a Londoner; I have a background in science, computing, information science and project management.
