New article by Devon Greyson regarding the information practices of young mothers

Former PhD Trainee Devon Greyson, Heather O’Brien and Jean Shoveller have published an article in ASIS&T titled: “Constructing Knowledge and Ignorance in the Social Information Worlds of Young Mothers.” This paper explores the health information behaviours of young parents. Among other findings, Greyson writes that young parents are perceived by others to have little knowledge in some areas, such as parenting, while being knowledgeable in others, such as information technology.
