Information resources and documents

My interests in this area cover the nature, organization and use of information resources of all kinds. This includes the historical development of documents and recorded information, with a particular interest in the nineteenth century, when much of our present information environment took shape. Because of my educational and work background, I have a particular focus on resources in science, specifically chemistry, and healthcare, specifically medicines information. I lead courses in City University London on information resources and information organisation, and on information in specific subject domains. Some of my recent publications in these topics (with links to self-archived or open access versions where available) are:
