Notes from the ASIS&T special interest group in international information

Does trust differ with international professionals?

What is trust?

  • Freedom of information
  • Information should be free flowing in the world
  • In developing countries, people trust the people that they know. Not used to searching for information in formal information sources. Tend to ask people that we know, even with the knowledge that they may not be the expert or an authority.
    response: as a librarian, tend to think about trust in terms of information sources we consult, but not as often if the information sources are trustworthy to the patronresponse: Brown found that scientists would consult colleagues rather than search for information in journals or databases.
