dc.description.abstract The chapter describes the ethnographic approach taken to research about the way scholars use networked information systems. It discusses how practising informant-driven fieldwork contributed to mindfulness about my own research process as well as that of my informants. To illustrate the significance of taking such an engaged and evolving approach for the outcomes of the project, this chapter is divided into two sections. The first provides background about the study itself that will help the reader to locate the research in the wider context of information behaviour research. This part of the chapter also explains the theoretical groundings of the fieldwork approach and the unfolding character of the analysis of that fieldwork. To demonstrate the value of putting these principles into practice, the second section presents some of the words and experiences of the two informants themselves. en_US
