Panel at ASIS&T 2016 Annual Meeting in Copenhagen with John M. Budd, Annemaree Lloyd, Carole Palmer  and Elaine Toms.

ABSTRACT

Information science and technology researchers and practitioners discuss information activities a broad range of terms. A concept that often appears in colloquial discussions of information activities but that has received less systematic attention is that of information work. This panel gathers a group of information science researchers who have explicitly used the notion of information work in their research to discuss how the concept can inform information science and technology research, and practice.
