Theories of Information Behavior

Edited by Karen E. Fisher, Sanda Erdelez, and Lynne E.F. McKechnie

"Theories of Information Behavior is much more than a research guide. It is a compendium and an encyclopedia of theories, philosophies, and experiments in information behavior research conducted over the past four decades or so. The presentations are concise, and many are a delightful read, written by protagonists of that research."

–Tefko Saracevic, School of Communication, Information and Library Studies, Rutgers University

This unique book presents authoritative overviews of more than 70 conceptual frameworks for understanding how people seek, manage, share, and use information in different contexts. A practical and readable reference to both well-established and newly proposed theories of information behavior, the book includes contributions from 85 scholars from 10 countries. Each theory description covers origins, propositions, methodological implications, usage, links to related conceptual frameworks, and listings of authoritative primary and secondary references. The introductory chapters explain key concepts, theory–method connections, and the process of theory development.
