Surfing, Searching, Reading... Electronic Documents

The arrival in force of documents on electronic supports in libraries and documentary resource centres compels information professionals to investigate the reading practices of their users. Surfers or researchers, they want different ways to access the information displayed on the screen and reproduced using the newest methods. Changes of strategy, changes of position, but also a more profound knowledge of the world of information, of its codes and rules will henceforth be assets for the electronic reader, who must prove his capacity to put it to use.
