Information-seeking behavior is one of the important themes of users studies. The humanists information-seeking behavior is quite different from those of scientists of social scientists mainly because they work alone, are concerned with those human achievements which make up our cultural heritage and rarely do their research work under the pressure of time. Books are the material the humanists use most often. Whatever the published year or language. Therefore they are very much dependent on the collections of the library. The way they seek information is first searching the reference bibliographies listed in the books or journal articles. Or simply browsing in the library. Because the databases of the humanities are quite few and the years of coverage are not enough the humanists do not regard the information retrieval system as being useful. Realizing the information-seeking behavior of the humanists the librarians have to make some adjustments in acquisition allocation and user services. Librarians in Taiwan should do more extensive users studies so that they might provide more suitable services and collections to different users.
