Information Management

Students join a lively community of research students and staff, becoming an integral part of the School's research culture and the Centre for Information Management. The Centre specialises in: the organisation and retrieval of information; knowledge creation, including the study of people's information behaviour; management of information systems and services, including the evaluation of the impact of information management and system development methodologies. We also welcome applications from other areas of data, information and knowledge management. Conference and symposia attendance is encouraged as is the development of joint publications with their Supervisor. These activities are partially supported by a dedicated fund, open to all research students on a year-by-year basis.
