内容简介:

Information Behavior (IB) research, as a part of the broader information science research, went through its first significant paradigm shift in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The shift was marked by changing empirical attention of information retrieval research from a system orientation to a user-centered focus. Even though over the years there have been terminology debates regarding whether information need or information behavior are valid areas of research, key information behavior models were given birth, and the IB research flourished with a multitude of general information behavior models and information seeking models of specific contexts (e.g., ELIS), accompanied with a high quantity of empirical studies. At the present time, as claimed by Marchionini (2008), the IB research should have made the shift from investigating three discrete elements of information (information objects, people, and technology) separately, to studying the interaction and co-dependence of these elements. Marchionini further indicates that information scientists should adopt an ecological view in their research.  Nevertheless, as revealed by Greifeneder (2014), currently there have been a very limited number of research studies on mobile technology, and no research on ubiquitous access. The new information reality gives rise to new information behavior and experience that would not have been captured or predicted by earlier IB models. It is time for a third paradigm shift and a new theoretical breakthrough, the one that shakes the foundation of traditional LIS research, and takes into full account of the emergent information reality where false information is produced without easy detection, and ubiquitous and mobile access to information enables users to no longer have the need to seek information as they already are overly-exposed to plentiful information of multiple sources and varying formats.
