    Hello, everyone! It’s been interesting reading everyone’s information community choices and seeing all of the variety there is! I’ve been giving my choice some thought too, and I think I want to focus on a topic that relates to the medical field, whether that be on a certain group of medical professionals like doctors, or on immigrants and how they access and use medical info. I come from a family of immigrants, so the latter option does hit close to home, but I think with recent pandemic events, it would also be interesting to pursue the former and see how such happenings could affect information use.

    • @qminmin253 I have had many strong papers on the information behaviors and needs of immigrants. I recall one student working on the information behaviors in needs of doctors and I think it might’ve been a bit of a struggle, but there could be more research now. I think either of these would be viable, depending on what Research is out there.
