I am Professor of Information Science in the Department of Library and Information Science at City, University of 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, editorial board member for MDPI’s open access journal Information and open post-publication peer-review journal Sci, and co-author of Facet’s best-selling textbook Introduction to Information Science (second edition published in 2022)

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