9780810849815: Youth Information Seeking Behavior: Theories, Models, and Issues

This resource is as much a tribute to its editors and contributors, a cadre of champions who have made the study of this underrepresented group their lifework, as it is a testament to their unwavering respect for the young inquiring mind. It begins with a historical overview of the literature on children's use and understanding of electronic information systems, when these retrieval mechanisms were in their infancy. Subsequent essays by leading figures in the field, all peer-reviewed, highlight the theoretical and empirical progress that has occurred since then. Including classic papers originally published elsewhere, the result is a powerful synthesis of thought, practice, and belief.

For practitioners and academics, and all those who seek to better understand the complex dynamics of information seeking among children and young adults. Deserves a place on every professional bookshelf for many years to come.

Review:

In Information-Seeking Behavior: Theories, Models, and Issues, Mary K. Chelton and Colleen Cool compile a collection of articles published in the 1990s about how children and teens look for and use information. The compilation not only demonstrates how far we have come but also how far we still have to go....Chelton focuses on what needs to come next in the field of youth information-seeking behavior. She raises many important issues, including the value that youth place on Internet resources over other types of resources, the role that electronic communication tools play in information gathering, and technology's impact on male literacy. (VOYA)

...a thorough, well-organized presentation of what is needed to teach research adequately...This volume would be an excellent addition to the school library curriculum at graduate schools... (School Library Journal)

...14 essays that examine a variety of ways of understanding how youth (except for pre-linguistic children) seek, process, and use information. Presented roughly in order of children's development stages, the papers address such topics as librarian assessments of student learning in libraries; students' perceptions of using technology; children's information choices for inclusion in a hypothetical, child constructed library; learning in the digital library; domain knowledge and children's search behavior; information seeking on the Web; information behavior in adolescent decision-making for careers; and adolescents' information seeking and utilization to drugs. (Reference and Research Book News)
