Research title: Mental Models of the Organisation of Scholarly Information Across the Academy: Disciplinary Similarities and Differences
My doctoral project addresses a gap in our understanding of how academic disciplines influence users’ expectations of how a library discovery system should work. The study draws upon library ethnography and library UX techniques to explore how researchers’ mental models of knowledge in their own fields vary across disciplines, and it investigates the connections between disciplinary culture and information-related behaviour.
