The study of information seeking behavior has emerged as a major area of research in library and information science in recent years. It may now be time to attempt to link that research on the social with the exciting new work being done by biologists, anthropologists, and evolutionary psychologists on the biological stratum of human existence and behavior. This talk constitutes a very preliminary and tentative examination of those links. For the time being, the questions can be expressed thusly: How does information seeking contribute to, or harm, the biological adaptivity of our species? How is our social information seeking behavior driven by or influenced by biological features of our makeup?

MENU: Chicken Dijon Florentine, salad, sourdough bread, chef's selection of two vegetables, dessert, and beverage. Bar available at extra cost.
