Title: A Survey of the Information-Seeking Behaviour (ISB) of Aquatic Science Librarians in Response to a Query

Abstract: Access to quality information plays a major role in a successful research. However, with the Internet, low-quality information has proliferated as anyone could post information online, which according to Silberg, et al. (1997) “the Net—and especially the Web—has the potential to become the world’s largest vanity press.” Nevertheless, several studies had been conducted proving that the Internet is the first information resource among different professionals mainly because of the convenience it gives to them. On the other hand, there are limited numbers of literatures about the preference of the librarians on providing answers to the information needs of their clienteles, and there is none among aquatic science librarians. Therefore, to provide an answer to this information gap, a survey will be conducted to investigate if aquatic science librarians like other professionals would opt to go to the Internet first rather than the library when searching for information. Moreover, preferred information sources whenever not available at the library will be identified. Results of the study will benefit aquatic science librarians as a whole since best practices will be documented and useful information resources will be enumerated.
