This week, I uploaded eight unpublished essays I wrote for the Library Science programme I am taking at City, University of London, to my Humanities Commons profile page. You can also find them on the Academic page of this site. They span such subjects as: the lasting legacy of Section 28 on public libraries; marginalised library users in smart cities and associated issues of access and inclusion; the effect of lockdown on public library services and individuals who use them; coronavirus-related conspiracy theories on social media; a critical evaluation of the DSM-5 as a tool for psychiatric information organisation an assessment of original research pertaining to oral history search systems; prison libraries and their collections, and; concepts of authorship in the infosphere.
I’m currently working towards a dissertation for this programme, to be submitted in September 2021. Other blog posts I have written reflecting on the Library Science programme of study can be found on this Blog feed.
