Patterns of information use and exchange: case studies of researchers in the life sciences

11 November 2009

Abstract

Scientific advances, the availability of powerful new information and communications technologies, and new policies governing research funding have brought major changes for life science researchers. Together these developments have significantly altered both their needs and their practices in acquiring, generating and using information resources.

In this context, our key aim in the case studies we report on here has been to improve understanding of information use in the life sciences, and to provide a broader and deeper base of evidence to inform discussions about how information policy and practice can most effectively be supported and improved.
