Looking for Information presents examples of information seeking and reviews studies of the information-seeking behavior of both general and specific social and occupational groups: scientists, engineers, social scientists, humanists, policy experts, the aged, the poor, and "the public" in general. It also discusses general research on information seeking, including basic research on human communication behavior as found in the literature of psychology, anthropology, sociology, and other disciplines.

Book Description:

An updated look at how humans seek out information

From the Back Cover:

Information seeking is a ubiquitous human activity. Whether gathering data for work or merely making sense of everyday life, looking for information is a basic behavior that shapes our lives. This book focuses on decades of research into how people both find and think about information related to their problems and interests. Covering a broad range of concepts and empirical studies, Looking for Information explains the major ideas, methods, and research findings from hundreds of studies of occupations, roles and demographic groups, including managers, doctors, nurses, patients, consumers, voters, scientists, engineers, scholars, journalists, lawyers, children, and the elderly. A bibliography listing more than 700 works makes this book a must for scholarly work and reference on information related behaviors.

Key Features:
 The first comprehensive review of information seeking literature to be published in several years.
 Defines key concepts, identifies trends and highlights prominent theorists and investigators.
 Illustrated with study examples, research models and typologies of investigations and methods.
 Essential reading for scholars and students in communications, information studies, management, education, and healthcare.
 Includes an appendix of questions for classroom use.
