Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only


The fun and enjoyable aspects of life have recently gained prominence as an exciting and worthwhile domain for research throughout library and information science. As this area of research has grown, so too have the questions about what “fun” means in a research context and how fun may be used to galvanize individuals into more meaningful information interactions. The goal of this session for interaction and engagement is to explore what recent research in the fun domain can teach practitioners, scholars, and students alike about how to engage people to more easily integrate information into their life and share with their communities.
