The Conceptual Librarian

About

A Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Art defines conceptual art as “A type of art in which the idea or ideas that a work represents are considered its essential component and the finished ‘product’, if it exists at all, is regarded primarily as a form of documentation rather than as an artefact.”(1)

The Conceptual Librarian applies the same approach to information provision, or, as Marshall McLuhan didn’t say: The medium isn’t the message.
