An emerging body of literature has begun to address the earlier under-researched topic of information creation. This panel inquires into the state-of-the-art of research on information creation to highlight how different conceptualisations of information creation can foreground various key aspects of how information is made and produced, what types of actors and activities are involved, how information creation can be studied empirically, and what novel insights can be drawn to support practitioners, for instance, in information literacy instruction, information organisation and management, and information systems and services development.
