forms the empirical foundation for a theoretical discussion about the information behaviour process in relation to dictionary use. The interdisciplinary approach gives a
deeper understanding of the dictionary user as an actor in a complex user context. User studies in LIS is an inspiring field for further studies in dictionary use also among other
