Editorial Reviews

Review

In Information-Seeking Behavior: Theories, Models, and Issues, Mary K. Chelton and Colleen Cool compile a collection of articles published in the 1990s about how children and teens look for and use information. The compilation not only demonstrates how far we have come but also how far we still have to go....Chelton focuses on what needs to come next in the field of youth information-seeking behavior. She raises many important issues, including the value that youth place on Internet resources over other types of resources, the role that electronic communication tools play in information gathering, and technology's impact on male literacy. (VOYA)

...a thorough, well-organized presentation of what is needed to teach research adequately...This volume would be an excellent addition to the school library curriculum at graduate schools... (School Library Journal)

...14 essays that examine a variety of ways of understanding how youth (except for pre-linguistic children) seek, process, and use information. Presented roughly in order of children's development stages, the papers address such topics as librarian assessments of student learning in libraries; students' perceptions of using technology; children's information choices for inclusion in a hypothetical, child constructed library; learning in the digital library; domain knowledge and children's search behavior; information seeking on the Web; information behavior in adolescent decision-making for careers; and adolescents' information seeking and utilization to drugs. (Reference and Research Book News)
