INFORMATION DESIGN AS INTERDISCIPLINARY RESOURCE OF DIGITAL CURATION IN COMPLEX CONTEXTS OF INFORMATION SCIENCE
MetadataShow full item record
This article aims to expose aspects related to the creation, organization and formal use of informational content in hybrid environments. It is proposed that Information Design (ID) should be considered in its dimensions of science, discipline and methodology as a complement to Digital Curation actions, an emerging area of Information Science (IS). The study discusses how ID converts Social Semantic Web resources into Digital Curation to optimize interaction and creation of new contents, essential for collective memory and contemporary culture. It is a scientific-theoretical discussion, based on the literature of the area and exploratory practices. The discussion involves the following topics: Information Design, the cybernetic understanding of systems and interoperability imbricated in Digital Curation, and, finally, systems interoperability and language convergence. Hence, this research discusses concepts that can act as instruments and methodologies in Information Science. In the contemporary information context, IS and ID are interdisciplinary as a fundamental resource to optimize the quality of information and digital data in a Digital Curation. These interdisciplinary areas dialogue and establish conversational actions through knowledge for constant improvements in information flows.
