"Information-Seeking Activities of Business Students:
An Historical Perspective" (Alice Littlejohn)

The library research activities of business students will be discussed as reported in the literature since 1970 and studied in the 1990s. How have those activities changed? What has been the impact of automation? What have we learned for the future?

"Theoretical Considerations" (Joe Atkinson)

"Business Information Competence from a Distance"
(Eloisa Gomez Borah)
