Welcome to iLab
iLab is an interdisciplinary information science research group investigating arising socio-techno phenomena and evolving information behaviour. In pursuit of a literate and informed society, much of our work is societal in nature, investigating human information need and use, and informing future interactive public information system service design. Holistic in perspective, our work is theoretically underpinned by shared interests in information retrieval, information seeking behaviour, and information architecture. Working closely with industry and the Library & Information Science profession, we have active research partnership agreements with a number of public sector organisations, and are members of the ESRC Information Science Pathway Doctoral Training Centre, and the AHRC Information Science Doctoral Scheme Consortium.
We welcome collaborative enquiries from both industry and academia, which in the first instance, should be addressed to group leader, Dr Steven Buchanan <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
