En la sesión de short papers/posteres del CERI 2010 presentamos el trabajo Tramullas, J. y Sánchez Casabón, A. (2010), Scientific information retrieval behavior: A case study in students of Philosophy:

Abstract. The behavior and patterns of recovery and processing of digital information by users is a recurring theme in the literature. The study of these behaviors are carried out through observation techniques and analysis of processes, actions and decisions undertaken by users in different situations. This paper presents the data resulting from the study of patterns of recovery and management of reference information of three consecutive courses of a specialized subject. The findings obtained showed a clear difference between patterns of information retrieval and obtained prior to the end of the training process, but there has been a significant change in the ultimate goal of users or appreciable changes in their prospects for application in other environments.

Keywords: Information seeking behavior, information user studies, information literacy.
