Abstract:For pastors to be successful in the execution of their pastoral duties (such as preaching, counselling, community development, and others) theological colleges and churches in Namibia should provide information services for them. This article discusses the information needs and information seeking behaviour of pastors, as well as factors which may affect their information seeking behaviour. The paper is based on a study entitled 'Information needs and information seeking behaviour of Namibian pastors', which employed both quantitative and qualitative research methods. The authors aim to influence policy and decision makers and religious information service providers by suggesting a framework for pastoral information services. Bibliogr., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
