Information seeking in electronic environment: a comparative investigation among computer scientists in British and Greek universities
MetadataShow full item record
Examines the information-seeking behaviour of academic computer scientists in an electronic environment. Although there have been many studies examining the behavior of various academic and non-academic groups, none has focused on computer scientists. Narrowing the focus of the study should provide a better understanding of the information tools used by the particular group of scientists, as well as a more detailed and accurate profile of the users leading to an in-depth understanding of the information-seeking process. Investigates how electronic information resources and information communication facilities (especially those located on the Internet) affect computer scientists in terms of communication, exchange of knowledge, and information-seeking behavior. Notes that part of the study takes place in Greece. The different level of information and library provision in Britain and Greece makes it appropriate to compare and contrast groups from these countries, which provides a picture of the current situation in information use, given the different development of information and library provision in the two countries.
