Abstract: In lengthy interviews of 43 meteorologists at two universities and a research center, the author investigated their methods of seeking information needed for their research, teaching, and current awareness. The primary goals of the study were to determine problems and challenges encountered by these scientists and to develop a profile of their information needs. Of particular interest were the effects of the Internet on their information-seeking behavior, particularly their access and retrieval of electronic journal articles and data. Suggestions for academic science librarians were developed through another series of interviews with successful information professionals. More than ever before, scientific information specialists must make clear their new roles in facilitating the scientific endeavor, especially the constant effort and vigilance required in developing and maintaining library Web sites, so convenient and indispensable to their clientele.
