The Design of Browsing and Berrypicking Techniques for the Online Search Interface.
Bates, Marcia J.
Online Review, v13 n5 p407-24 Oct 1989
Presents a new model of searching in online and other information systems, and reviews the literature of manual information seeking behavior for suggestions of capabilities users might like in online systems. Based on the model--called "berrypicking"--and research, suggestions are made for how new search capabilities could be implemented into the design of search interfaces. (49 references) (CLB)
