Computing for Information Professionals

Series editor: DIANE RASMUSSEN PENNINGTON, University of Strathclyde, UK

There is a demand for technical skills in the information professions that students and practitioners must meet to be competitive in the current job market from database design to user centred design. The books in this series have been carefully conceived to help learners acquire these skills at a deep enough level for an information science audience but without the excessive technical detail that will overwhelm readers. Each title offers technical expertise that is situated in the context of the information professions.

Example book topics include:

  • Information visualisation techniques
  • User-centred design
  • User experience (UX) research and implementation
  • Information systems design and analysis
  • Development of web-based systems
  • Mobile apps
  • Programming/scripting
  • Data mining
  • Responsive design
  • Open source software

Students and information professionals in a range of settings will likely find the books useful, including those working in museums, archives, records management, or within any other organisation that has to deal with technology.
