Creating Knowledge 2008

We warmly welcome you to Creating Knowledge V Conference in Turku/Åbo, Finland, 20-22 August 2008.

Information behaviour on the Internet – challenges for the libraries

Internet is by now an integrated part of the different fields of everyday life. While everyone develops an expertise in a selected and limited field of the net, libraries try, on the basis of the library profession, to teach their customers to comprehensively manage information in an educational context. The current situation implies educational, technological and organizational challenges for libraries. They have to consider other experiences and approaches to the Internet than those of their own, as well as learn to interpret changing information behaviours.

Subthemes of the conference:

  • social, cognitive and psychological aspects which influence information behaviour
