Karen Fisher, Lynda Baker, Christine Brown

Presented at ASIST 2003 Annual Meeting -- Humanizing Information Technology: From Ideas to Bits and Back (ASIST AM 03 2003), Westin Long Beach, Long Beach, California, October 20 - 23, 2003


Abstract

Little research has focused on the information behavior of the general public (Julien & Duggan, 2000). In this session we report findings on how information is sought and used as part of everyday life by three distinct groups: (1) street-level sex workers, (2) new immigrants, and (3) hairdressers. Each study is briefly described in our extended abstract for a Technical Panel Session sponsored by SIG USE.
