About Barbara H. Kwasnik

Barbara teaches in the areas of organization of information, theory of classification, and information science. She is especially interested in how classifications are translated from one culture or application to another. The purpose is to help support increasingly diverse contexts. Other ongoing research (with Kevin Crowston) includes investigating whether genre information can help in searching, and a project (with Carsten Oesterlund) on the nature of documents and documenting work.
