Are Librarians Familiar with Information Seeking Behaviour of Teachers and Researchers in Their Respective Institutions?

Polona Vilar, Tomaž Bartol, Jan Pisanski, Primož Južnič


The paper compares results from two studies conducted in 2011: an extensive survey of information behaviour of Slovenian researchers and a smaller survey of academic and special libraries, in order to assess how well the libraries are aware of the behaviour of their users. The results show that in some areas the librarians are well aware of the user needs while in some other areas, they need more information about the preferences and requirements of researchers. Only thus can they provide appropriate services.
