English abstract

The general characteristics of the investigation published on informational behavior in Spain are exposed, In view of these characteristics, the necessity to focus this investigation using qualitative approaches is argued. Also it is necessary to generate or to derive appropriate theoretical frameworks. For it, other social sciences, like psychology and sociology, offer methodologies that help to orient the investigation from the user perspective. In particular, the contribution of the Grounded Theory for the study of the informational behavior is described

Spanish abstract

A la vista de la investigación publicada sobre comportamiento informacional en nuestro entorno más próximo, se expone la necesidad de enfocar los estudios sobre cualquiera de los aspectos del proceso de búsqueda de información desde un perspectiva cualitativa y partiendo o generando un marco teórico. Para ello existen enfoques propios de otras ciencias sociales, como la psicología y la sociología, que ayudan a orientar la investigación de los usuarios de los sistemas de información, basándose en la observación de su realidad sin juicios a priori, con el fin de obtener resultados útiles para una planificación de estos sistemas más adecuada. En concreto se describe la aportación de la Grounded Theory como estrategia de investigación en los estudios sobre comportamiento informacional
