Title
Information systems vs information user
Source
Managing information. 3(1996) no.6, S.31-33

Abstract
There is a tendency for the information profession to neglect information use and the user. Discusses the factors which conspire to create this situation: the information profession is system driven; the profession is plagued by poor communication skills and insular attitudes; the expenditure of resources is thought to be excessive and unaffordable; and there is no existing easy or practical methodology. Considers the reasons why users' needs must be taken more seriously in future
