Title

A LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF PERCEPTIONS OF THE INFORMATION QUALITY OF INFORMATION FROM A LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF PERCEPTIONS OF THE INFORMATION QUALITY OF INFORMATION FROM THE INTERNET AND TRADITIONAL TEXT SOURCES

Abstract

Because the Internet has evolved over time and because the experiences of college-aged users have changed over time, the current study seeks to take a longitudinal look at users’ perceptions of the quality of information from the Internet and from traditional text sources. Data on users’ perceptions of the information quality of information from Internet sources and the information quality of information from traditional text sources such as books, magazines, and newspapers will be collected in 2006–2007 and compared to data collected for earlier studies published in 2001 and 2002. The overall goal of the study is to determine whether users’ perceptions have remained stable over time or have shifted over time.
