Context --“the complex web of social relations which [the individual] inhabits” (Spratt and Florian, 2015, p.90) touches everything, including individual and group circumstances, positionalities, feelings, experiences, and environments. Context forms not only how we communicate information in the field and in the classroom. Individual and community contexts affect the processes of searching for information, accessing information, and the interpretation and use of information. (Encheva, 2016; Mitchell, 2017; Yeo et al, 2015). Furthermore, such contexts affect how information scientists teach and conduct their research and how information (in a classroom setting or otherwise) can be delivered to individuals and communities for action. How we, as information scholars and professionals, take individual and community contexts into account will affect our work. Issues of context will be thoroughly interrogated from a number of different perspectives by both the panelists and audience members in this interactive and participation-based session.
