Information Seeking Behaviour and Development of Information Systems: A Contextual View
University of Skövde, School of Humanities and Informatics.
1996 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this work is considered how knowledge from the area information seeking behaviour can be used when information systems are to be developed. This work emphasize a holistic view on how information systems are related to object systems. The conditions for developing an information system differ depending on what kind of information the system should provide. It is in this paper noticed that it is more challenging to develop information systems for what is here called supportive information compared with systems that will provide operative information. If an information system should be able to function in a changeable environment it must have a flexible design. Futhermore, to get an understanding of the mechanisms of change is more relevant than to accomplish minute specifications of users' needs. An effort in this paper is done to elucidate factors such as triggering of information behaviour, usability based on evaluations of information systems or sources, and selection of information sources or systems. It is proposed that an understanding of the mechanisms of change should form one basis for analysing changing conditions for information systems due to dynamics in the objectsystem.
