Subject: Library and Information Science
Name and describe two prominent information-seeking theories or models used for understanding library patrons' information behaviors.
The "Berrypicking" model developed by Marcia Bates describes how searchers gather their information little by little in bits and pieces during multiple searches over time. In other words, they "berrypick" as they find relevant information over several different searches. The Information Search Process (ISP) model developed by Carol Kuhlthau describes six stages of information searching, which are initiation, selection, exploration, formulation, collection, and presentation. In each stage, there is an emphasis on understanding the feelings, thoughts, and actions of the user during the search process. Other possible answers might include Brenda Dervin's "Sensemaking" theory, Everyday Life Information Seeking (ELIS), the Principle of Least Effort (PLE), Belkin's Anomalous State of Knowledge (ASK), and others.

Explain the difference between id CSS selectors and class CSS selectors.
An id selector finds elements that match an id attribute and can only be used once per document. A class selector finds elements that match a class attribute and can be used more than once in a document.
