Abstract:Ultimately, the community of practice itself constitutes an information system. The central dynamic of this is information convergence, the alignment of practices and resources. This convergence is created in the course of becoming a full member of the community of practice, and is enacted through the practices of the community. This holistic understanding of humanities scholars' work leads to new understandings of how and why people use information resources.
