lynxi2015thelynxiblog 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 also write about 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, fashion, 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.

In addition to this site, my social media addiction is fed by Twitter (@lynrobinson), and by LibraryThing. I also maintain a profile page at City University London.
