Information-Seeking Behavior in the Big Lebowski
This paper helps me truly appreciate Library Science. "'New Shit Has Come to Light': Information-Seeking Behavior in the Big Lebowski" takes a close look at the 1998 Coen Brother's movie and aligns movie characters to successful (and unsuccessful) research behavior. The paper illustrates "the intricate, self-defined nature of information seeking behavior and the ways in which personal characteristics contribute to the success or failure of an information search."
If you've seen the movie, I bet you've seen it many times. If you haven't, you should (as long as your tolerance for surrealism and depictions of near-constant drug use is high). The movie, in conjunction with this article, may change the way you talk about research to students, hipsters, and library users of
all most types.
