Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v34 p111-22 1997
Findings from three separate studies of relevance judgments by 44 initial online search users were examined. Results show that, for users conducting their initial search on a particular information problem, the number of items judged "partially" relevant, not item judged "highly" relevant, were positively correlated with important changes in users' information problems and information seeking processes.
