Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v59 n3 p67-79 2018
Students in the Library and Information Science concentration at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, are being taught the Information Horizon Interview (IHI). By learning this technique, students are able to conduct original information behavior research upon a topic or population of their choice. This article provides a succinct overview of the IHI. It then reports on an IHI assignment and learning experience with enough detail and resources to enable turnkey adoption by other LIS educators.
