User Behaviour in Resource Discovery 

This project aims to identify, understand and compare behaviour of students and researchers from business and economic studies representing different level of information literacy experience (novice, experience and expert) using various resource discovery systems available in HE institution as well as free online resources available on the Internet while seeking for information relevant to their work or study.

The purpose of this work is to inform JISC, publisher groups and libraries of issues arising from the interaction between user behaviour and the technology that will impact the development of a roadmap for improving user access across the different platforms so as to improve the quality of scholarly information search and retrieval.
