Abstract

Our position paper outlines two models of collection in the digital world presented in recent doctoral research. Both models are based on dimensions of collection as “thing”, “process,” and “access”, identified using a mixed-methods research design including interviews, a survey, catalog searches, and a case study of the British Library’s collection for the subject area of social enterprise. Our research revealed a considerable degree of shared understanding of the concept of “collection” by library and information professionals and ordinary people engaged in the field of social enterprise, whether users or non-users of library and information services.
