This unique volume in the library field takes the methods of naturalistic research developed in anthropology and applies them to information studies and library science. The chapters provide a step-by-step description of the various aspects of naturalistic inquiry, covering the background theories, complete methodology, and practical suggestions for library applications. Clearly written in a direct and engaging style, the book is the first study of natural inquiry to be specifically directed toward librarianship.
