Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


In order to design proper information systems for designers, it is important to understand how they enrich their knowledge base during the design process, what triggers their queries for information, what strategies they use and what factors influence their behavior in relation to information seeking. Exploring these questions requires a closer look into the design process and the factors that influence information intake. In this paper different aspects of the design process will be considered that are relevant to information access during the early stages of this process. The implications of such aspects in the design of information systems to support designers will be discussed.
