Abstract
Through a deconstructive reading of texts on qualitative method and its contrast with quantitative method and through information needs studies regarding specific populations of women this paper concludes that the focus on method should not drive research. Rather, the ontological and epistemological stances or researchers assessed on a spectrum from subjective to objective are more indicative of the perspectives represented in library and information science research
