Foreword by Professor Annemaree Lloyd, Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Boras
Today’s society is characterized by quick technological developments and constant changes to our information environments. One of the biggest changes has been on our workplace environments where technological developments have automated work processes that were previously done by manual labour whilst new professions and work tasks have emerged in response to new methods of creating, sharing and using information.
Information at Work provides a comprehensive account of information in the modern workplace. It includes a set of chapters examining and reviewing the major concepts within workplace information, from over-arching themes of information cultures and ecologies, to strategic concerns of information management and governance, and to detailed accounts of questions and current debates.
This book will be useful reading for researchers in Information Science and Information Management and students on related courses. It is also suitable to be used as an introductory text for those working in allied fields such as Management and Business Studies.

Praise for Information at Work
"This is a gripping account of how information works in the modern workplace. The act of reading it is unlikely to leave any information professional unchanged, and will provide them with a base on which to observe, redesign and discuss information management systems and services in their environment."
