Hi to all, my name is Francisco and I'm looking forward to this conference. I'm not a librarian, but I'm a moderate library user. Lately, I've been reading about the digital divide and its fluidity as a concept. It used to refer to the gap between the haves and have-not's of access to computers and the Internet, but the concept has grown in complexity, to refer (among other things) to observable gaps separating individuals and groups in relation to the technical skills and intellectual tools needed to obtain and advantageously use information from electronic sources. One factor playing into in this gap, and in which I am particularly interested, is linguistic background. How does it impact information seeking behavior and the degree of success with which a user engages the task of searching for information?
