Information Search Pattern in Electronic Environment
Technological developments in recent years - particularly in the area of computers, telecommunications, and storage technologies - have significantly changed the way researchers generate, collect, organize, present, disseminate, and share information. Librarians need to be familiar with multi-platform systems in order to serve and aid their clientele. Their knowledge of organizing and indexing information for the researcher will have intrinsic value, especially for the end-users when they search the system. This book examines the information search patterns of science doctoral students in the electronic environment. It will assist librarians and other information managers in developing countries on how to develop information- and communication technology-based library systems where the doctoral students can access and search the latest electronic information sources.
