T. D. Wilson

In 1999, T. D. Wilson developed a general model of information seeking behaviour that brought together different areas of research in the study of information behavior. The model represented research topics as a series of nested fields, with information behavior as the general area of investigation, information-seeking behavior as its sub-set, and information searching behavior as a further sub-set. The model provides three fold view on information seeking context, system and information sources.
