This chapter examines the contributions of human information behavior (HIB) research to the information retrieval (IR) systems design, as well as the extent to which HIB research is guided by IR research. It first considers the concept “implications for design” before turning to research to inform design in HIB and human-computer interaction, types of models in HIB and IR, barriers and challenges to HIB-IR research collaboration, and contextual research in IR. It also looks at two approaches that would enhance research collaboration in HIB and IR: direct collaboration between HIB and IR researchers and the participation of an intermediary who bridges the gap between the fields.

Keywords:   human information behavior, research, systems design, information retrieval, implications for design, models, human-computer interaction, collaboration, intermediary, contextual research
