|Festschrift for Martin Purvis|
An Information Science "Renaissance Man"
Mariusz Nowostawski and Holger Regenbrecht, eds
Prof Dr Martin K Purvis spent most of his academic life with the Department of Information Science at the University of Otago, Aotearoa New Zealand. Former and current fellow academics and postgraduate students contributed to this collected volume of scholarly articles and reflections to honour the immensely productive career of Prof Purvis. This festschrift’s breadth and depth of topics is indicative of Martin’s expertise and interests and is a call for rejuvenating a “renaissance” view of information science and computing. We hope, that a wide range of scholarly readers will enjoy the topics covered and thoughts shared.
