Abstract:This work provides a reflection on the relationship between movement patterns, homeless youth, and their information seeking behaviors within the information systems they have access to in order to find help. While understudied, the relationship between the movement patterns of the homeless youth population could be used to build information systems that are customized to the way this population looks for and uses resources. We propose a two phase user study focused on homeless youth that consists of a semi-structured interview as well as a user study on a tool they use to locate resources for help.
