Mixing the library - Information interaction and the disc jockey

Dan Norton (Lead / Corresponding author), Mel Woods, Shaleph O'Neill

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A model of information interaction, based on the activities of disc jockeys (DJs) provides a valuable conceptual framework for working in large digital collections. Their processes and workflow demonstrate creative information behaviours that are transferable to other data-representations; as such the model represents a new take on read/write systems of interaction for creative development in archives of all kinds, and provides a platform for learning and authoring with digital collections.
