ABSTRACT

This study intends to shed light on the everyday lives of Korean-residents in Japan, especially in terms of their information behavior.

Specifically discussed are (1) their types of everyday concerns and ways to deal with such concerns; (2) types and characteristics of the problems-solving behavior; (1) types and characteristics of the preferred information sources; and, barriers to and limitation of their everyday information seeking and information use.
