Description
Summary:"Everyday Information Practices: A Social Phenomenological Perspective draws on interviews with environmental activists and unemployed people during 2005 and 2006 and explores their practices of information seeking by focusing on how they monitored everyday events and sought information to solve specific problems. The study shows that everyday information-seeking practices tend to be oriented by the principle of "good enough" and that, overall, the role of routines and habits is more significant than previously assumed. Thus, the practice of everyday information seeking tends to change quite slowly."--Jacket.
