Information behaviour of the young

Information Behaviour of the Researcher of the Future
The British Library / JISC, 2007

“This document examines the literature from a wide range of sources – including academic research papers, articles from professional magazines and opinion pieces  from library bulletins etc. – to elicit information on the information behaviour of young people. A specific aim was to establish whether there has been a change in the way that teenagers (and young undergraduates) approach information, libraries and research, occasioned by advances in and, as importantly, the availability of ICT (information and communications technology) applications. Of major interest is in the exploitation of Internet search engines – particularly Google – and use of portable ICT devices that can be used for information retrieval.”
