LOPEZ FRANCO, Fermín. An approach to information needs of a community of winemakers in Baja California. Investig. bibl [online]. 2010, vol.24, n.51, pp. 125-145. ISSN 0187-358X.
Winemakers have information needs about their discipline, including matters regarding grape selection, planting and care, harvest, production and commercialization. Moreover, they exhibit behaviors associated with meeting these needs; however the processes and information sources involved are not known. This paper provides definitions of these information needs and a brief contextualization of this information within the larger fields of agriculture and biology when information specifically associated with winemaking is unavailable. The methodology involves documentary research, field study, surveys and interviews. A description of some results regarding the information needs of winemakers is also presented.
