    Abstract:
    Little is published about the information-seeking habits of contemporary Egyptian artists, a community of creative intellectuals at the forefront of the current political and cultural revolution in the Middle East. Using Susie Cobbledick’s and William S. Hemmig’s frameworks for understanding the information-seeking patterns of artists, this article interprets the responses of young Egyptian artists through a phenomenographic analysis. The author presents the results of in-depth interviews with eight Cairo-based artists, carefully examining five types of artists’ information needs.
