Abstract
This paper presents an evolving framework for human information behaviour, including information exploration, seeking, filtering, use and dissemination. It is based on empirical studies of human information behaviour in a variety of settings (Iivonen & Sonnenwald, 1998; Sonnenwald, 1993, 1995, 1996) and theories from a variety of research traditions, including information science, communication, sociology and psychology that inform our understanding of human information behaviour. I begin formulating the framework by discussing fundamental concepts, such as context, situation and social networks. Building on these concepts, I propose a series of propositions that strive to elucidate the framework. Key ideas in the framework include the introduction of the role of social networks in information exploration, and the concept of an `information horizon' in which we can act to explore information.
