Abstract

in this article we discuss the value of the self-confrontation method to study the search for information. We describe the origins, expected benefits, limitations and uses of the method in different areas. We question the scarcity of his employment in empirical work on information research. We try to show that the specific capabilities, recollection of activity dynamics, and reflexivity of interviewees, are likely to meet the theoretical and methodological requirements of the study of information activity. Finally, we offer an example of cross-self-confrontation employment, provided by our study on student/youth research.
