Is the web still a place where people broaden themselves, à la the idea of an information commons?

Does the average user actually use the tools developed through our body of knowledge and practice?

Conclusions


Are people using tools developed with lis knowledge and practice
Are people using tools developed with LIS knowledge and practice?

  • With UWKW as case study, then yes

  • Move UWKW from prototype to wider use at UW

  • LIS theory & research informed:

    • Design process

    • Features

    • Guidelines for use


Implications for lis field
Implications for LIS field practice?

  • Study information behavior in teaching and learning

  • Explore knowledge representation as a tool for learning

  • Translate research findings into design heuristics


Tools to think with

Q & A practice?
