Information and Society
TAKEDA Masaki (Assistant Professor) : Public Library Services in an Aging Society, Universal Information Environments for Senior Citizens, Information Literacy
With the goal of creating a universal information environment, my research concerns the effects of information source and structures on information source selection and actors. I especially focus on quantitative analysis of the cognition, psychology, and behaviors of actors by modeling. At present, I am interested in information behavior of older adults based on characteristics of their cognition, estimation of older adults’ latent needs for public library services, and evaluation of library services for older adults.
