Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS).  Once undertaken primarily by museum professionals, the activity of  curatorship has  been  popularized via the Web. Social media tools, such as YouTube playlists and Pinterest Web bulletin boards, enable users to curate a diverse range of materials for personal use and for broader publication.  But what makes one set of “curated” items more interesting than another? In this paper, we show how findings from an initial humanistic  inquiry led to a lab-based user  experiment, and how combined insights from these studies have illuminated new research streams in both humanistic and design research modes.
