Interdisciplinarity in LIS Research

In an interview with IBNA, entitled “LIS Studies are Intrinsically Interdisciplinary”, I talked about the interdisciplinarity, multidisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity, and crossdisciplinarity in LIS research. I believe LIS studies are basically interdisciplinary in terms of their approach, their methodology and their topics. In this interview I explained these three aspects and tried to show how LIS researchers can make use of other subjects’ theoretical frameworks and topics to enrich their studies. I think LIS has its most links with communication studies, management, computer science, psychology, sociology, linguistics, and architecture.
