Everyday information practices: An exploration of intra-individual information behavior across everyday contexts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Everyday information behavior studies individuals' information behaviors based on their everyday experience. To analyse one participant's information behaviors across daily life contexts, we used interviews and observations as primary research methods. Findings demonstrated that one individual's regular behavioral patterns, such as cross-referencing, information reviewing, and vision driven information seeking, were consistent across contexts. This work also confirmed the potential to conduct information behavior research by closely looking into one individual across different life situations.
