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) cover a fairly wide area, including: foundations of the information sciences; theories and philosophies of information; information-related behaviour; documents and information resources; knowledge organisation; information research methods; information history; and digital literacy. See here for more details.

Please look here for my academic and research interests and here for my current teaching, mainly with City’s Library and Information Sciences Scheme.

I’m the editor of Journal of Documentation, the leading European journal of library/information science, am on the editorial board of Portal: Libraries and the Academy and am co-editor of Facet Publishing’s Foundations of the Information Sciences series. I am a member of the council of Aslib.

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

Forthcoming talks, papers, and other things here.
