Amanda Hovious is an Assistant Professor at the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State University. Her research is shaped by the understanding that uncertainty is a ubiquitous property of the information world, which can be better understood through the lens of human interactions in sociotechnical environments. Studies informed by this understanding include multimodal complexity analyses, games-based learning surveys, methodological papers, and conceptual essays that challenge current understandings of information behavior. Publications include articles in the Journal of Documentation, Library Trends, and Technology, Knowledge and Learning, among others.

Lala Hajibayova is as associate professor at Kent State University School of Information. Hajibayova’s research examines interplay between individuals’ contextualized experiences of engaging with systems and the potential of individuals’ collective actions to enrich systems of representation, organization and discovery, leading to ways to facilitate designing of human-centered systems that embrace multiplicity of views and comply with ethical norms.
