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.
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.
