The Impact of the Information Explosion on Library Users: Overload or Opportunity?
Rudd, Mary J.; Rudd, Joel
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v12 n5 p304-06 Nov 1986
Erroneous belief that library users are increasingly experiencing information overload is a result of confusion between concepts of information explosion and information overload, and misinterpretation of implications of research findings. Suggested ways that users can prevent overload include limiting, selecting, and delegating information; improving research skills; and realizing time constraints. (Author/CDD)
