Abstract
Information encountering is the term used to describe the process of accidental information discovery. Reports results of a study to attempt to provide a conceptual framework for information encountering as part of the overall pattern of information seeking behaviour. Data was collected from questionnaire surveys and interviews with 132 respondents who reported their experiences of information encountering. 4 tentative groups of users were identified: super encounterers; encounterers; occasional encounterers; and non encounterers. Super encounterers believe that they are able to create situations conductive to information encountering
