models described in the preceding pages do not include the influence and effects of
electronic information access through the Internet and how that may affect information
seeking behavior and activities. Most of the research simply described the types of
resources used or the preferred types of information for various subject researchers. Most
of the models of the information search process concentrate on describing either
behavioral actions or cognitive processes in the search process. Ellis and Kuhlthau
respectively represent these two major types of models. Much of the newer research
focused on "a micro-approach, studying small groups via observation or unstructured
interviews" (Ellis & Haugan, 1997, p. 385). Many of the researchers used both
quantitative and qualitative approaches to analyze their data.
