The portrait of the humanities scholar that was drawn by Stone in 1982 included the characteristics of working alone, needing to browse collections, and adopting a variety of approaches to identifying material. A review of the 1983—1992 literature suggests that a more complete understanding is now possible of the information needs and uses, and of the information-seeking behavior, of this library clientele. A current portrait of the humanities scholar suggests that this client group is more diverse than previously assumed.
