The information-seeking behavior of social science faculty studying stateless nations.


Description

The purpose of this study was to describe and analyze the information needs and information-seeking behavior of social science faculty studying stateless nations (e.g., the Basques, Chechens, Kurds, and Tibetans) and to examine the feasibility and value of electronic mail interviewing for conducting qualitative research. The study focuses on developing a model that best describes the information- seeking behavior of this user group. This model builds on David Ellis's model of information-seeking behavior of social scientists.
