Workshop

Where Your World Meets Mine:  Information Used Across Domains (SIG USE)
Wednesday, October 12, 2011, Full Day 9:00am-5:00pm (workshop fee)

The 11th Annual SIG-USE Research Symposium will explore the intersections of information seeking and use with domains outside of information science. The purpose of this symposium is to explore a wide range of domains and disciplines in interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and multi-disciplinary research and practice. The 2011 Symposium will engage in reflection on our efforts in pursuing boundary crossing, boundary living, and boundary pushing research agendas as well as on identifying challenges posed by such divergent approaches. It will feature five keynote addresses presenting diverse views on information seeking and use in both research and practice. Graduate students, practitioners, and faculty members whose work lies near the center as well as at the edges of the boundaries of information behavior are invited to participate.
