BIO

Professor Detlor’s research interests lie at the intersection of users, information, and information systems. His current research project pertains to the City of Hamilton’s “Love Your City, Share Your Stories” digital storytelling project that involves the creation, storage and dissemination of a collective memory of digital stories concerning significant Hamilton cultural icons and their history. Partners on the project are Hamilton Public Library, McMaster University Library, and the City of Hamilton’s Tourism and Culture Division. Professor Detlor also has research interests in digital literacy (i.e., the ability to handle and communicate information and knowledge effectively in a variety of media and formats; the ability of workers and citizens to locate, organize, understand, evaluate and create information using digital technology to function in their workplaces and in their daily lives). Past research projects have investigated topics such as information literacy in business schools, web information seeking, knowledge management, the adoption and use of information systems (e.g., research ethics board information systems) and various kinds of websites (e.g., library, government, organizational). He currently teaches courses in information systems, electronic business and project management.
