Abstract

The development of mobile technology and wearable activity monitors, making it possible for people to retrieve data about their daily activities, is presenting aspects of information seeking behaviour not covered well by previous research. The main objective of this paper is to consider how the new information seeking contexts evident in the use of self-tracking ex- tend current understandings of the way people need, seek, share and use information. This paper reviews current trends in information retrieval system design, interactive information retrieval, and human information behaviour research as the foundation for a discussion aboutthe way that new trends in information seeking contexts and human information behaviour can inform research.
