Description
Everyone uses information gathered through the senses to understand and navigate daily life. Despite this ubiquity, some types of sensory information have received little attention within library and information studies (LIS). This CAIS paper analyzes one sense as an example, the sense of smell, in order to identify cultural, linguistic, and methodological considerations for bringing it into greater focus within our discipline. This paper illustrates the complexities of studying sensory information, and argues that doing so will contribute to richer examinations of people’s information practices.
