dc.description.abstract This paper proposes a conceptual framework for creative information seeking drawing upon Weisberg’s argument that creativity exists in everyone, and mapping the creative process described in the holistic model of creativity to the information seeking activities identified in the behavioural model of information seeking. Using scenarios of information seeking behaviour, mappings between the creative process and the information seeking activities were refined and six stages for creative information seeking were proposed. These scenarios were also used to provide theoretical justifications for each stage in creative information seeking. Evidence gathered from the scenarios seemed to indicate that the type of information seeking task may have an impact on the extent to which the information seeker exhibits all stages in the framework. This is on-going research. Part II of this paper aims to conduct empirical studies and gather evidence to verify the framework and examine this observation in more detail.
