Digital interests

I'm interested in the cognitive issues affecting the formulation of non-textual information retrieval requests. I'm also interested in the role of librarians and digital libraries at the intersection of curated digital libraries, non-curated (personal) collections, and bibliographic media — particularly, how shifts in the way the academe uses computers for teaching and research is blurring the boundaries between brick-and-mortar libraries, digital library collections, institutional repositories, archives, users' personal electronic media, and the internet (e.g.., google, flickr, facebook, blogosphere).
