Abstract  

This paper presents the advantage of information foraging theory compared with traditional information retrieval theory and user behavior analysis theory, then gives a research content framework for information foraging theory, and extends the framework based on a through review of the two research branches, the basic concept of information foraging theory, the elementary models of information foraging theory. Several problems for future research are also identified through.

Key wordsInformation foraging      Information scent      Patch models      Diet models      Marginal value      Foraging theory      Information foraging theory
