ABSTRACT
Saturday October 1st, 2005, Gudrún Thórsteinsdóttir defended her thesis "The information seeking behavior of distance students". The thesis explores the information behavior of distance students, an education mode that has become increasingly common as a result of the rapid development in information technology. What was once mainly advocacy and politically correct language is now a reality in educational institutions: life-long learning. Students who study at a distance make this term come alive and prove its validity beyond mere rhetoric.
