Chen, Ching-Chih; And Others
This summative report highlights findings of a survey into the everyday information needs of New England residents related to occupational and non-occupational situations in which they made decisions, sought answers, or clarified or solved problems. Data from the survey provide insights into the behavior of information seekers, information sources consulted, perceived level of user satisfaction with information sources, institutional and environmental barriers to effective information seeking, and reasons for use and non-use of libraries.
