Be Slow, Skeptical, and Classify: Recommendations for LIS Education
Mai, Jens-Erik
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v60 n2 p152-167 2019
This paper argues that medium for information access becomes central to library and information science. The author discusses the notion of medium, medium neutrality, and personalization and suggests that the dominating paradigm of providing fast, efficient, and neutral systems and services for retrieving information has sidetracked opportunities to explore the impact of medium on information access. The paper makes three specific recommendations for library and information science education: be skeptical, slow down, and understand classification.
