About the Author

Nigel Ford is Professor of Information Science at Sheffield University, and is currently Deputy Director of the Information School's Centre for Information Literacy Research. He has taught information behaviour at undergraduate and Masters level for 30 years and is a leading researcher in the field, with an extensive publication record spanning journals and books.


Ford has written a truly organic work in contrast to other similar books that are essentially listings. Ford deliberately simplifies the confusing, chaotic picture of information behavior concepts and research for his intended audience .... such an ably useful and sophisticated rendering of a complex research field was extremely interesting. -- Charles Cole * Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology *
