Foster’s nonlinear model has been described in various publications, and version 2 of the model was put forward based upon development work between 2006 and 2011. The refined model was based upon a validation and testing project, which included production of a validated and more clearly accessible code book. The code book published in this document briefly outlines the codes and definitions entailed in Foster’s nonlinear model (v2). This code book provides the basic code descriptions necessary to support further research in this area, the journal articles and other textual material 2008-onwards relating the model highlights and discusses the coding and provides context. Key words: codes; codebook; qualitative; nonlinear; information behaviour; behaviour.
