This thesis is an in-depth investigation into the information-seeking behaviour of the so-called Net Generation, Generation Y or Millennials. The idea of a Net Generation that is tech-savvy has continued to have resonance with educators, politicians and the general public, in spite of a growing body of academic research which has produced evidence to the contrary. Understanding young adults’ information-seeking behaviour is an important first step preparing them for an online future.
