Chair for Research in E-Librarianship, 2010-2013

York University Libraries’ first W.P. Scott Chair for Research in E-Librarianship (2010-2013), Adam Lauder, has situated his research within the interdisciplinary fields of digital humanities and critical information studies.

Lauder is developing an online catalogue raisonné of the work of IAIN BAXTER&, the IAINBAXTER&raisonnE. He is editor of a book featuring new work by BAXTER&, H& IT ON (YYZ, 2012), that includes an essay by Lauder which situates Bertram Brooker and BAXTER& within a specifically Canadian tradition of information art.

Lauder has also written a chapter on Brooker that appears in The Logic of Nature, The Romance of Space as well as an article on the relationship between the artist-advertiser and the Toronto School of Communication published in the journal TOPIA.

Lauder has contributed articles to Canadian Art, Border Crossings, C and Hunter and Cook magazines as well as the journals Art Documentation, Technoetic Arts, Future Anterior and The Journal of Canadian Art History.
