Best Student Paper / Prix du meilleur article par un étudiant
By drawing on insights from a doctoral project, this paper makes a case for examining the cultural meanings of information practices. The analytical value of this approach is elucidated through examples from an analysis of the digital curation practices at a digital broadcasting archive. The paper concludes by suggesting what role this approach, and information practice research more broadly, could play in the critical scholarship on data curation and data science.
