This panel examines the interaction between being a migrant, using international students as a salient example, and information behaviours in a time of COVID-19. We address issues such as information overload, selection of information sources, and social networking. The aim of this panel is to bring together interested researchers in the areas of information practices, higher education, and intercultural communication.
