Dr Mark Hepworth

Dr Mark Hepworth specialises in studying people’s information behaviour and researching factors that affect information behaviour. These include, for example, the context of the person as well as individual characteristics. He is particularly interested in the methods and techniques that can be used to understand people’s information behaviour. This knowledge has led to studies that focus on identifying people’s information management capabilities, including information literacy, and how people and organisations can foster and develop information management capabilities. Exploiting various methods to understand people’s information behaviour has also led to an interest in, and the development of, techniques that can be used to identify people’s information needs, in particular participative techniques that enable people to take an active role in the design of, appropriate, people centred information services and products.
