  title={Creativity in Digital Libraries and Information Retrieval Environments},
  author={Shu Shing Lee and Yin Leng Theng and Dion Hoe-Lian Goh},
Inspired by Weisberg’s [20] argument that creativity exists in everyone and on the assumption that every information seeker is creative and undergoes a creative process in information seeking, this paper synthesizes a holistic “creativity” model and “information seeking” model to identify stages in a creative process for information seeking. [] Key Result We discussed these initial findings and made recommendations for further work to better support creative information seeking in digital libraries and…
Creative Interface Design for Information Seeking
A holistic model of creativity was proposed synthesizing established models in creativity, and five approaches investigating relationships between creativity and information seeking were highlighted.
Creative Interface Design For Information Seeking
A novel way to address limitations in traditional information retrieval (IR) systems by incorporating design features in an IR interface to support users' information seeking behaviours is proposed.

This review of English-language publications from the past four years does not systematically examine developments in any of these domains; it does, however, occasionally reflect on their intersections with digital libraries.
User perceptions of information quality in world wide web information retrieval behaviour
Perceptions of IQ are examined from the perspective of eighty “academic” high-end users, who regularly engage the Web and its search engines to search for and retrieve high-quality information related to their research, teaching and learning.
Assessing user perceived service quality of digital library
There are significant differences between two groups of users for using the digital library services in terms of the perceived service quality constructs of (i) usability, (ii) usefulness, (iii) adequacy of information, (iv) accessibility and (v) interaction.

Computational environments supporting creativity in the context of lifelong learning and design
Stimulating ideas through creativity software
Investigating whether computer-based procedures for idea generation can help individuals to develop solution alternatives more creatively suggests that computerized idea generation leads to more creative alternatives resulting in potentially better managerial decisions.
Student Teachers’ Beliefs about Creativity
Abstract The purpose of the present study was to examine student teachers’ beliefs about creativity, creative outcomes, and factors related to creativity. Even though the importance of facilitating
A Principle of Uncertainty for Information seeking
The principle is proposed to explain the constructive process of information seeking and use bringing affective considerations to what has usually been regarded as a cognitive process.

A behavioural approach to information retrieval system design is outlined based on the derivation of a behavioural model of the information seeking patterns of academic social scientists, and the extent to which these characteristics are available on existing systems is considered.
Multilevel Theorizing about Creativity in Organizations: A Sensemaking Perspective
In this article we explore assumptions about the levels of analysis embedded in the extant literature on creativity in organizations. Uncovering and then relaxing these assumptions allow us to extend
A Comparison of the Information seeking Patterns of researchers in the Physical and Social Sciences
The information seeking patterns of a group of research physicists and research chemists were analysed and the key features of those patterns identified and fundamental differences in information seeking behaviour could not be determined.
