The SIG/USE symposium focuses on information issues at work. It acknowledges social, individual and technological perspectives on the roles and flows that information takes as part of physical and digital work. The broad approach relates to the conference theme with a focus on information behavior (IB) or on information practices (IP) in connection to workplaces. Despite, or perhaps due to, the advances in technology, today’s workplaces are challenged by how to create, discover, share, value and enhance information and knowledge at and for work and how to design and manage the systems that support these functions, which are so critical to organizationally effective and individually rewarding work.

SIG/USE Symposium Chairs:
David Allen, Leeds University, United Kingdom
Katriina Byström, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Norway
Nicole A. Cooke, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Luanne Freund, University of British Columbia, Canada
