Metadata[+] Show full item record
This study reports on the preference and use of information resources by first-year medical students at the University of Missouri School of Medicine. It was part of a larger study that was conducted to understand their search competencies, Problem-Based Learning study approaches, and characteristics of online information seeking behavior. We report the findings by using the concept of "Information Horizons." Information horizons may consist of a variety of information resources whose use is determined socially and individually and may be conceptualized as densely populated solution spaces
