"This book is a must if one is a student or researcher new to information science and, in particular, to information retrieval (IR) interaction and multimedia research."

"This is an interesting collection that deserves to  be adopted as a key text within information science courses. Award-winning, internationally renowned editors have enticed a number of experts, some with industry experience, to provide high-quality contributions. The solid chapters discussing core fields that make up its coverage –  information seeking, information behaviour,information retrieval – assure its place on reading lists. The editors have ensured new developments receive attention  but not at the expense of the essentials of the fields."
