An Assessment of the Online Searching Behavior of Practitioner End Users.
Nicholas, David
Journal of Documentation, v52 n3 p227-51 Sep 1996
The online searching behavior of 170 nonacademic end users (journalists and politicians) was evaluated and compared to the searching behavior of information professionals. Findings discuss ways in which end user behavior does and does not conform information professionals' preconceptions and how searching behavior is related to levels of experience and training. (AEF)
