Information Overload, Stress, and Burnout: The Need for Contemplative Approaches in LIS
AbstractThe information age, despite its undeniable opportunities and benefits, is also rife with stress, information overload, and anxiety. Given this context, LIS unfortunately remains largely silent about these affective concerns. One way to address these concerns is for LIS to embrace contemplative approaches as a mode of inquiry. As such, the paper offers a preliminary sketch of a “contemplative LIS” to allow LIS scholars and professionals to more effectively address issues such as overload and burnout. This exploration is based on the following four themes: 1) Attention; 2) Relationships; 3) Reflection; and 4) Action.
