“Fandom and Information Literacy”

Friend of the Gutter Matt Finch talks with SOAS University of London librarian Ludi Price about “the way fans collect, share, and organise information about their fandoms.”

“This 1-hour discussion with Dr. Ludi Price explores what information professionals can learn from the ways in which information is managed by online fan communities.

Dr. Price is China & Inner Asia Librarian at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, and an Honorary Visiting Fellow at City University’s School of Library & Information Science.

Ludi’s research has focussed on fan information behaviour: the ways in which communities of people with a shared passion for pop culture have managed, organised, and distributed information relating to their fandom.”
