Information behaviour research has the potential to improve the design of information systems, the implementation of social initiatives, and the quality of everyday human lives. Many reviews on information behaviour scholarship have been published to date, which have provided scholars comprehensive overviews and new insights into the field. Although the importance of literature reviews in information behaviour is widely accepted, little research has been done to understand these reviews. To fill this gap, this research summarized 97 literature reviews in the field of information behaviour. This paper found (1) there were two transformations in the history of information behaviour; (2) current research focuses on specialized areas of information behaviour; (3) the quality of information and social contributions of the research are two issues discussed among literature reviews; (4) the boom of models and theories happened in the 1990s and the early 2000s, but new models and theories are needed in digital environments. By studying information behaviour in a general and comprehensive way, this paper contributes to tracing the development and identifying key issues of information behaviour. Moreover, this paper also aims to inspire research in other fields; it provides an innovative perspective to understanding a research field with a considerable body of research: a review of literature reviews.
