MetadataΕμφάνιση πλήρους εγγραφής
The aim of this work is to study the information-seeking behavior of the hospital staff in a large public hospital, the METAXA Cancer Hospital in Greece. An empirical research was conducted through the development of a specially designed questionnaire. The survey was based on a stratified random sampling covering 20% of the total hospital staff (medical, nursing, and administration/technical). The auxiliary hospital personnel were excluded from the survey. Out of 167 questionnaires distributed, 145 were completed and returned, i.e., a response rate of 87%. This survey reveals needs, preferences for certain information resources, and obstacles to information seeking as well as the crucial role of hospital libraries and information services. Adapted from the source document.
