Summary/Abstract: The basic object of the considerations which are presented in this work is the proces of searching for scientific information. On the basis of an analysis of a dozen or so existing concepts, the theoretical part presents the proposal of new models of information seeking and searching – models which reflect the behaviour of the modern users of scholarly information. The object of research in the empirical part has to do with the elements of the user’s interface which facilitate interaction at the particular stages of the proces of information retrieval. The research which was conducted bore fruit in the form of the construction of a model which supports the interaction of the user with the system. In order to fulfil the goals which were set, the theoretical part employs the method of the analysis and criticism of writing, whereas the empirical part employs the method of an analysis of the content (of systems), the benchmarking method and the survey method. Polish‑language information science reference works do not include publications which discuss the problems of seeking and searching scientific information in a comprehensive manner. The present monograph attempts to fill this gap, at the same time enhancing the present state of knowledge by introducing new themes and refreshing the concepts which became somewhat obsolete in the course of years. The work is intended above all for specialists – the researchers of the informationbehaviour and the designers of scientific information systems. However, the work may also be successfully used as didactic material for students who pursue various courses of study.
