    Hi @michael! I have a question about the part in the LIS Model/Theory assignment helper that states: “List the other scholars who have used the model or theory as a framework in their research.” Are we referring to scholars who have written about our chosen information community, or other scholars who have referenced the theory in their own work about other information communities? I read the available LIS Model/Theory examples from the Synthesis page and it almost seems as if either/or is acceptable, but I want to be sure!
