Abstract

Library studies (LS) has increasingly used ethnography since the mid-2000s, but researchers have insufficiently reflected on what ethnographic methods are or should be. As a result, ethnographic research in LS has developed in a limited way. To address this problem, this study draws from a closely-related community, human-computer interaction (HCI), to illustrate how ethnographic research in LS could be developed more robustly.
