I am not yet quite done with thinking of what to do for the end of course work....but I am leaning towards information needs and information seeking behaviour.... and that might change too!

Are you looking at a specific emergency department?? Or is it supposed to cover any emergency department?

We'll see how far I go with following up on the Health Presence. It will be interesting to at least see what they intend to do.

Nice...thanks a lot for the link. I saw something like that in the media once on TV but I was not able to get any further info. I was interested to see what they are really up to and what goals they are looking to achieve.

Thesis?? Good for you. what are you working on?

I still have another year of course work! But work is keeping me busy so I am happy to take it slow :)
