Lingel, Jessica, Trammell, Aaron, Sanchez, Joe and Naaman, Mor (2012): Practices of information and secrecy in a punk rock subculture. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW12 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2012. pp. 157-166. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2145204.2145230

By examining the information practices of a punk-rock subculture, we investigate the limits of social media systems, particularly limits exposed by practices of secrecy. Looking at the exchange of information about "underground" shows, we use qualitative interviews to examine uses of social media among fans. This initial analysis centers on understanding the tactical practices of information and technology to avoid police detection, particularly by comparing uses of more traditional online forums, such as message boards, with social network sites, such as Facebook. Understanding the uses and preferences for distinct technologies sheds light on how localized social context drives technological use. These findings are furthermore useful in their implications for design of applications sensitive to granular needs of users for secrecy.

Lingel, Jessica (2012): "We realized we had to become librarians": DJs, information practices and music libraries. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 569-571. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2132176.2132292

This project addresses information practices used by disc jockeys (DJs) to organize music collections, focusing in particular on issues of managing large collections of media. Using in-depth interviews with 12 DJs, accounts of music collection, music organization and preparing for shows are analyzed to gain an understanding of how this particular community of practice manages technological change. Main themes from initial analysis include: the problematic nature of genre as a high-level mode of organization and the difficulty of scaling organization practices from smaller physical collections to large digital collections. Drawing on these themes, implications for design of DJ programs (such as iTunes and Serato) are offered, and directions for future work are discussed.

Lingel, Jessica (2011): Getting from here to there: information practices of immigrants in urban environments. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 710-711. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1940761.1940880

This project addresses the information practices of the immigrant community in terms of the processes related to gaining, interpreting and disseminating information about host neighborhoods in urban environments. Using in-depth interviews and participatory mapping (a methodology involving analysis of maps produced by interviewees), accounts of immigrants are analyzed to gain an of how migrational individuals with limited access to formal information networks navigate urban environments. Main themes from initial analysis include: the use of multiple information sources to learn about local environments, the influence of personal experiences (such as work history) on interpreting surroundings, and the importance of wandering in becoming familiar with new environments. Further work in this area can lead to important developments for public libraries and acculturation programs in terms of providing improved services for the immigrant community.
