Partridge, Helen and McAllister, Lynn and Toohey, Lisa and Field, Rachael and Crowe, Jonathan and Allcock, Annelies (2020) Understanding the information experiences of parents involved in negotiating post-separation parenting arrangements.

Abstract

The paper presents findings from a study into the information experiences of people needing to make post-separation parenting arrangements. Data was collected from 20 participants, through in-depth, semi-structured, telephone interviews. Thematic analysis identified five major themes: Following, Immersion, Interpersonal, History and Context which depict the information experiences of the participants. The findings can be used as an evidence base to inform the design and delivery of support and services provided by government agencies and other community groups supporting the legal information needs of individuals and families. The work extends current understandings of information experience as an object of study in the information science discipline.
