Information Science

How we get information

This is my first post.  So, hello.  I’m Ethan.  I work as an Administrative Assistant in the Dean’s Office of the Library.  When I’m not working, I am also a graduate student at the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science.  Most of my blog posts will likely relate to what I am learning in school. The issue of how people receive and use information is a hot topic in the Library/Information Science community.  It is with this topic in mind that I stumbled upon a blog post from the New York Times culture blog ArtsBeat. It seems that the auction house Christie’s has created an iPhone app that allows users to browse their collections.  I won’t go into too much detail but I would recommend reading the article.  Fortunately, people now have access to Gucci hand bags, with a starting bid of $4,086, in the palm of their hand.
