The 20th Annual SIG-USE Research Symposium focuses on the grant challenges in information behavior and information practices research. This workshop is an opportunity for researchers, students, faculty, and information professionals who are interested in information behavior and information practices research to discuss the grand challenges of theory development in these areas. The workshop will facilitate information exchange among scholars and information professionals, provide a place for those new to information behavior and practices to engage critically with the field, and allow both scholars and practitioners to get feedback on preliminary and ongoing work. It will feature a dynamic panel and full paper presentations to explore different development and challenges in information behavior and practices research. The symposium also offers a unique mini workshop for authors who are interested in submitting their works to the JASIST special issue on Information Behavior and Information Practices Theory.
