Multisensory, Pervasive, Immersive: Towards a new generation of documents

Robinson, L. (2015). Multisensory, Pervasive, Immersive: Towards a new generation of documents. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, 66(8), pp. 1734-1737. doi: 10.1002/asi.23328

Abstract

The emergence of immersive documents, which allow the “reader” to perceive unreality as real, is foreseen. This new type of document will evolve from the combination of contemporary participatory, transmedia storytelling with pervasive computing technologies and multisensory interfaces. It is argued that a research program within library and information science is needed, to investigate new information behaviors associated with such documents, the new digital literacies needed to make effective use of them, and their place in the information communication chain.
