Contributions to the EBLIP “Classics” section follow a structured format designed to highlight, summarize and critically appraise research studies that have stood the test of time and that have had (and continue to have) an impact on library and information practice. Previous “Classics” have included the work of William Postell, Constance Mellon, Carol Kuhlthau, Joanne Marshall, and Robert Taylor. For an example of a “Classic” summary, see
