Information Behavior and Japanese Students: How Can an Understanding of the Research Process Lead to Better Information Literacy?
Ishimura, Yusuke
Public Services Quarterly, v9 n1 p20-33 2013
Academic librarians are striving to better serve international students as this emerging population grows on university campuses. Past studies of international students generally focus on linguistic and cultural differences in relation to information literacy skills development. However, it is necessary to go beyond these factors to better serve the population. By using a framework based in information behavior research, the present study investigates the factors that mediate students' behavior and information literacy skills. Practical recommendations based on the findings of an in-depth qualitative study of students' research process are provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
