An essential primer for students studying information behaviour

Facet Publishing have announced the release of Nigel Ford’s textbook Introduction to Information Behaviour.
Introduction to Information Behaviour uses a combination of theory and practical context to map out what information behaviour is and what we currently know about it, before addressing how it can be better understood in the future. Nigel Ford argues that new understandings of information behaviour research may help maximise the quality and effectiveness of the way information is presented, sought, discovered, evaluated and used.
