This purpose of this research study is to investigate information anxiety among junior college teachers in Singapore. Using the discourse of information overload, this study examined teachers' responses to information in an increasingly information-rich environment. Demographic attributes such as gender, age group, years of teaching experience and the nature of the teaching subjects are taken into consideration. Work-related factors such as time constraints and the use of email that may contribute to information anxiety were also identified and analysed. This study hopes to offer an insight into how teachers, when overwhelmed and stressed by information overload, can be helped to manage information better.
