Picking up a dropped line of thought.
About a month ago, I was on a little tangent
about business researchers studying information seeking and not citing other people doing the same research OR the vast body of LIS research on information seeking... Along those same lines, BI
just pointed to a neat article by a LIS researcher
that might really have been useful to the business researchers. I double checked and neither of them cited it. Not only does she talk about social capital and information seeking from other people but she cites all the big people in LIS research. Of course, she had to, this work was an offshoot of her dissertation.
Here's the citation: Johnson, C.A. "Choosing people: The role of social capital in information seeking behaviour" Information Research
