Walsh, Andrew (2012) Mobile Information Literacy: a preliminary outline of information behaviour in a mobile environment. Journal of information literacy, 6 (2). pp. 56-69. ISSN 1750-5968

The purpose of this paper is to examine the idea that information searching and use may vary with the widespread use of internet capable movile devices.

It highlights areas of existing literature that report variation in information searching and use on mobile devices, in addition to reporting on the results of a small set of semi-structured interviews. This was a small qualitative study, interviewing five experienced and confident users of mobile devices which will not show the full range of mobile behaviour in seeking for and using information on the move.

It gives a starting point to consider how information behaviour may change between mobile and fixed environments.
