Abstract


Penelitian ini mengenai Perilaku Pencarian Informasi Mahasiswa Pascasarjana UIN  Alauddin melalui survey dari 40 respondent  yang berfokus pada; motivasi pencarian informasi, karakteristik kebutuhan informasi, perilaku pencarian informasi dan hambatan  dalam pemerolehan informasi. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa aktivitas belajar mengajar seperti penulisan makalah dan pengembangan diri (profesionalitas) merupakan motivasi utama dalam melakukan pencarian informasi. Koleksi tercetak, koleksi digital, terbitan mutakhir dan terbitan klasik merupakan faktor dominan dari karakteristik bahan pustaka yang dibutuhkan mahasiswa pascasarjana meskipun dengan presentasi yang berbeda. Perpustakaan, toko buku, individu merupakan tempat yang strategis untuk melakukan pengecekan suatu terbitan, dan bab pengantar/pendahuluan, daftar isi dan judul merupakan bagian dari suatu terbitan yang sangat membantu untuk penentuan tingkat relevansi dari suatu terbitan. Mahasiswa pascasarjana UIN Alauddin mengalami hambatan external yang lebih dominan dibandingkan dengan hambatan internal dalam pemerolehan bahan pustaka untuk memenuhi kebutuhan informasinya.
