Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Purpose – The purpose of this article is to advocate for a broader discussion of potential needs for better communication and theory in the areas of technological adoption, management and application in libraries and information centers. Design/methodology/approach – From personal readings, reflection, experience and the insights of others in the field, the paper considers movements in the larger library and information science (LIS) theoretical literature and its potential application to technology issues. Findings – Numerous areas of potential future research and action in the field are identified to stimulate further discussion and efforts. Originality/value – Although these newer theoretical discussions have stimulated research and reflection in the few, few discussions have been made in the information technology arena, an area ripe for such consideration.
