Abstract: A model of information interaction, based on the activities of disc jockeys (DJs) provides a valuable conceptual framework for working in large digital collections. Their processes and workflow demonstrate creative information behaviours that are transferable to other data-representations; as such the model represents a new take on read/write systems of interaction for creative development in archives of all kinds, and provides a platform for learning and authoring with digital collections.

 

Keywords: mixing; selecting; creativity; post-digital libraries; disc jockeys; DJs; information behaviour; archives; publication workflow; learning; information interaction; creative behaviour; authoring; digital collections.
