    How can we teach students to navigate the natural experience of uncertainty that is an inherent part of seeking meaning from information? This session will examine Carol Collier Kuhlthau's uncertainty principle and its implications for designing library assignments that can teach students to recognize the affective symptoms associated with the.   The bottom line of this book is that you should face uncertainty regardless of fear and doubt in order to be successful.

      The book is titled “Radical Uncertainty,” written by John Kay and Mervyn King (published by W. W. Norton & Company). The book was released on ma (other than from Seeking Alpha. Discusses the theoretical foundations needed to understand economic decision-making and links the simpler analysis of passive adaptations to uncertainty - the balancing of risks - to the more difficult study of active adaptations of information-seeking behaviour.

A half-century ago Claude Shannon, mathematician and innovative engineer at what was then called the Bell Telephone Laboratories, formulated the idea of information content residing in a message, and, in a seminal paper of , he established the discipline that became known as information theory.

The uncertainty reduction theory, also known as initial interaction theory, developed in by Charles Berger and Richard Calabrese, is a communication theory from the post-positivist tradition. It is one of the only communication theories that specifically looks into the initial interaction between people prior to the actual communication process.

For example, most minority newcomers appear to experience relational uncertainty more than their majority counterparts. On the other hand, White newcomers seem to engage in overt information - seeking at work more than do Hispanic neophytes. Further, they appear to engage in testing behavior less than African American or continental Asian new.

Uncertainty due to a lack of understanding, a gap in meaning, or a limited construct initiates the process of information seeking. The principle is expanded by six corollaries: process corollary, formulation corollary, redundancy corollary, mood corollary, prediction corollary, and interest corollary.

Descriptive. Uncertainty is an ever-present part of human relationships, and the ways in which people reduce and/or manage uncertainty involves regulating their communication with others through revealing and concealing information.

This collection is devoted to collating knowledge in these areas, advancing theory and presenting work that is socially. This chapter surveys the research in information seeking behavior, defined as the patterns of behavior that people display when they experience information needs, make choices about where and how to look for information, and reflect or act on the information they see.

The chapter examines the influence on sense-making (Dervin), information search process (Kuhlthau), and information. The Standard Model of Information Seeking. Many accounts of the information seeking process assume an interaction cycle consisting of identifying an information need, followed by the activities of query specification, examination of retrieval results, and if needed, reformulation of the query, repeating the cycle until a satisfactory result set is found (Salton.

In particular, we reconsider the focus of uncertainty, the function of uncertainty reduction, and the nature of information seeking.

We then discuss how relationship intimacy, power dynamics, and information expectancies correspond with information-seeking behavior within. inclusion in Communication Studies Faculty Books and Book Chapters by an authorized administrator of Chapman University Digital Commons.

Information behavior is a field of information science research that seeks to understand the way people search for and use information in various contexts. It can include Information seeking and information retrieval, but it also aims to understand why people seek information and how they use term 'information behaviour' was coined by Thomas D.

Wilson in and. Further, whereas global uncertainty was predictive of amount of information seeking, target-specific uncertainty was unrelated to the frequency of both question asking and disclosure. These findings are discussed in the context of uncertainty reduction theory.

Needing to Know for Sure provides much-needed guidance to help you know the difference between reassurance seeking and information seeking by giving you great examples and helpful facts throughout the book. Most importantly, the authors offer step-by-step guidance to get you disentangled from reassurance seeking and back to living your life by.

This paper proposes an uncertainty principle for information seeking. The principle is based on the results of a series of studies conducted by the author into the user's perspective of the information search process.

A basic principle of uncertainty is elaborated by six corollaries. The principle is proposed to explain the constructive process of information seeking and use. The ISP considers uncertainty as natural and essential for constructing personal knowledge in the process of information seeking rather than regarding the reduction of uncertainty as the primary objective of information seeking.

Uncertainty is a concept that offers insight into the user’s quest for meaning within the ISP. “In this book, Martin Seif and Sally Winston explain how intolerance of uncertainty and reassurance seeking are major contributors to anxiety and other negative emotional states.

They offer an innovative and easily understood perspective on the relation between intolerance of uncertainty and excessive reassurance seeking that has immediate.The results also suggest that communication efficacy and information-seeking impact each other cyclically.

The findings of this research suggest that scholars should focus on people's information-seeking experience and communication efficacy when examining information-seeking following events that increase uncertainty in close relationships.The effects of communication efficacy on information-seeking following events that increase uncertainty: A cross-lagged panel analysis.
