Ever wonder what impact the way in which people search for information has an on
their decision making? As librarians, we teach people on a regular basis how to find
information, but give little thought to how those lessons influence a clients’ decision
making ability. In this presentation, you will be given insight into the theories
surrounding how people go about finding information, which is tied to how people
make decisions. At the end of this presentation, you will gain theoretical background
knowledge that can be used in reference interview strategies. While this knowledge
is applicable in any health information setting, health information for professionals
will be used as an example in this presentation.
