Tony A. Moore
ASIS&T Annual Meeting - 2006 (ASIS&T 2006)
Austin, Texas, November 3-9, 2006
New information and communication technologies are fundamentally changing social engagement. Through an evaluation of literature, I critique digital library research in the context of consumer health information. This paper first explains the concepts of digital libraries and healthcare informatics. An example of design for social engagement is presented. This paper concludes with themes for future research on the grounds of designing for social engagement through digital libraries. Social engagement should become a key component of the emerging Digital Library discussions.
