What I Am Reading Now

Doctoral Life:  I'm currently reading Carol Collier Kuhlthau's book, "Seeking Meaning:  A Process Approach to Library and Information Services" 1st edition (Chapter 3).    Kuhlthau is the Professor Emerita of Library and Information Science at Rutgers University.
     The book focuses on the Information Search Process (ISP) which is a six stage model of the users’ holistic experience in the process of information seeking.  The ISP model, based on two decades of empirical research, identifies three realms of experience: the affective (feelings), the cognitive (thoughts) and the physical (actions) common to each stage.    This book was extremely helpful for me because I recently wrote a paper about the  Constructivist Metatheory Approach and the Information Search Process.
