1Lueg, C.: To be or not to be (embodied) : that is not the question.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 71(2020) no.1, S.114-117.
Abstract: Two articles in a recent special issue on Information and the Body published in the journal Library Trends stand out because of the way they are identifying, albeit indirectly, a formidable challenge to library information science (LIS). In her contribution, Bates warns that understanding information behavior demands recognizing and studying "any one important element of the ecology [in which humans are embedded]." Hartel, on the other hand, suggests that LIS would not lose much but would have lots to gain by focusing on core LIS themes instead of embodied information, since the latter may be unproductive, as LIS scholars are "latecomer[s] to a mature research domain." I would argue that LIS as a discipline cannot avoid dealing with those pesky mammals aka patrons or users; like the cognate discipline and "community of communities" human computer interaction (HCI), LIS needs the interdisciplinarity to succeed. LIS researchers are uniquely positioned to help bring together LIS's deep understanding of "information" and embodiment perspectives that may or may not have been developed in other disciplines. LIS researchers need to be more explicit about what their original contribution is, though, and what may have been appropriated from other disciplines.

2Lueg, C. ; Banks, B. ; Michalek, M. ; Dimsey, J. ; Oswin, D.: Close encounters of the fifth kind : recognizing system-initiated engagement as interaction type.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 70(2019) no.6, S.634-637.
Abstract: We posit that the well-established interaction type "toolbox" currently providing the four interaction types Instructing, Conversing, Manipulating, and Exploring should be expanded to include a fifth interaction type, Responding, that accounts for user engagements in response to a system-initiated engagement request. This expansion reflects that increasingly, smart systems request input from users without having been prompted by them, which is the essence of the existing interaction types. Systems utilizing the Responding interaction type proactively seek input from users in situations where said input is required.

3Lueg, C. ; Twidale, M.: Designing for humans, not robots (or vulcans).
In: Library trends. 66(2018) no.4, S.409-421.
Abstract: There is growing interest in embodiment in information seeking, which we use as an opportunity to reconsider what we as designers of information interfaces aim for. While we have become quite good at developing interfaces that are effective at supporting specific needs or needs that have been rendered specific, we are still not good at providing interfaces that reflect a key human characteristic and strength: being embedded in this world and being curious about it. While this discussion is related to research into serendipity (see, e.g., Erdelez et al. 2016), we stay clear of this body of work since we feel the issue is a broader one: we seem to have become stuck designing interfaces that are more suitable for patient, logical, rational robots (or Vulcans) than for mammals who get tired, bored, exited, irritated, intrigued, or distracted, and who even change their minds about what they want to do.

4Lueg, C.P.: ¬The missing link : information behavior research and its estranged relationship with embodiment.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 66(2015) no.12, S.2704-2707.
Abstract: In this brief contribution I argue that an apparent dichotomy between information behavior seen as the behavior of individuals and their respective information styles and information behavior considered as a social practice may be resolved by considering the underresearched corporeality of the human body aka embodiment, which is a fundamental aspect of any kind of behavior, including information behavior. Practice is inherently embodied too, which means embodiment can be utilized as a vantage point to seek conceptual grounding for the rather diverse range of theories and models in information behavior research. The challenge then is to articulate in what ways and on what levels a particular approach contributes to advancing information behavior research. Conceptual clarity would also help information behavior models and theories developed in libraries and information science become more accessible and hopefully also more relevant to researchers in cognate disciplines.

5Prichard, J. ; Spiranovic, C. ; Watters, P. ; Lueg, C.: Young people, child pornography, and subcultural norms on the Internet.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.5, S.992-1000.
Abstract: Literature to date has treated as distinct two issues (a) the influence of pornography on young people and (b) the growth of Internet child pornography, also called child exploitation material (CEM). This article discusses how young people might interact with, and be affected by, CEM. The article first considers the effect of CEM on young victims abused to generate the material. It then explains the paucity of data regarding the prevalence with which young people view CEM online, inadvertently or deliberately. New analyses are presented from a 2010 study of search terms entered on an internationally popular peer-to-peer website, isoHunt. Over 91 days, 162 persistent search terms were recorded. Most of these related to file sharing of popular movies, music, and so forth. Thirty-six search terms were categorized as specific to a youth market and perhaps a child market. Additionally, 4 deviant, and persistent search terms were found, 3 relating to CEM and the fourth to bestiality. The article discusses whether the existence of CEM on a mainstream website, combined with online subcultural influences, may normalize the material for some youth and increase the risk of onset (first deliberate viewing). Among other things, the article proposes that future research examines the relationship between onset and sex offending by youth.
