Library and Information Science Research, v14 n2 p167-81 Apr-Jun 1992
A factor analysis of affective data gathered from searchers of an online library catalog, and a card catalog allowed researchers to isolate factors leading to success or failure in information retrieval. Factor patterns serve to identify how searches are evaluated by users. Further research is suggested as are features to facilitate successful search experiences in end user systems. (LAE)
