David Bawden

I am Professor of Information Science in the Department of Library and Information Science at City University London. My interests (research, scholarship, and teaching) focuses on three areas: the nature of information, and the information sciences; digital literacy, information fluency, and the development of understanding; and documents as information resources in specific domains. See here for more details.

Please look here for my academic interests and here for my current teaching, mainly with City’s Library and Information School #citylis.

I am editor of Journal of Documentation, the leading European journal of library/information science, co-editor of Facet Publishing’s Foundations of the Information Sciences series, and co-author of Facet’s best-selling Introduction to Information Science.

My research and scholarship is mainly done through City’s Centre for Information Science, and in conjunction with our excellent group of research students.
