Abstract: How can we practice interdisciplinarity in Library and Information Science? Knowledge Translation is an important field in the Health Sciences as it is concerned with translating research into practice and informing patients and clinicians about important new findings in laboratories. This paper presents a new model for domain analytic research for the field of Knowledge Organization (KO), drawing on theoretical frameworks from Translation Studies and Knowledge Translation in Health Information Science to model translational action. The result is a model for situating "knowledge at the margins" without pretensions to universality, by focusing on contingent translational acts between domains. This paper embodies practically what it presents theoretically by translating theoretical frameworks from the domain of Translation Studies to the domain of Knowledge Organization to demonstrate how Knowledge Translational Action can aid a domain analytic framework for Knowledge Organization in the field of Library and Information Science.

This event is part of the 2023/24 Mediations Lecture Series.
