Discovering Information Behavior in Sense Making: I. Time and Timing. [and] II. The Social. [and] III. The Person.
Solomon, Paul
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v48 n12 p1097-138 Dec 1997
Using the methods of ethnography of communication, this three-part study investigates time and timing, social elements, and individual information behavior in sense making. Argues that the sense-making concept captures how information behavior creates meaning and that a research focus on information and information-seeking divides people from information systems, specialists, and institutions.
