Definitions and Theories
Human Information Behavior .... hmmmm. If HIB is a field or respected discipline, then what is its primary journal, who is its primary founder(s), what are its body of beliefs and theories, agreed-upon definitions? When human information behaviorists use the word context, what do they mean? constructivist? is it taken from Foucault? or from some other theorist? I need my OED. Where is the Handbook of HIB? What is the most respected book in the field? The most respected journal?
