The ‘information search process’ revisited: is the model still useful?

The ‘information search process’ revisited: is the model still useful?.

This 2008 ‘paper examines the continued usefulness of Kuhlthau’s Information Search Process as a model of information behaviour in new, technologically rich information environments. . . Conclusions. The information search process model remains useful for explaining students’ information behaviour. The model was found to have value as a research tool as well as for practical application.’ (part of the Abstract)

I also  found some revealing statements (succinctly expressed) in the Todd (2007) paper referenced.  Having experienced the affective zones that Kahlthau identified, I’m now wondering how much ‘information-to-knowledge’ development has occurred in my own course of study.  Some I’m certain – and with each subject I do (and each research assignment!!), I’m sure the transference of information / to knowledge / to behaviours will become more apparent. http://www.webcitation.org/5cbESk41x R. Todd (2006)
