This article explores the information needs and informa- tion-seeking patterns of the people living in com- munities surrounding telecentres.

The research was done utilising the Critical Incident Technique (CIT) to determine how people or communities seek information con- cerning problem-solving, decision-making or ques- tion-answering situations. CIT was also used to de- termine the extent to which ICTs were used in seeking information.
