Abstract

As indicated in the findings of a larger study investigating the information-seeking behaviour of grade-three students it is asserted that traditional classification and indexing methods used in school libraries and print reference materials targeted at young students often do not address young searchers’ unique information needs and searching behaviours.

Tel que l'a démontré une étude plus large sur les comportements de recherche d'information d'élèves de troisième année, la classification traditionnelle et les méthodes d'indexation utilisées dans les bibliothécaires scolaires et le matériel de référence pour les jeunes ne répondent pas à leurs besoins informationnels unique, ni à leurs comportements de recherche.
