Wolfram, Dietmar; Dimitroff, Alexandra
Information Processing & Management, v34 n6 p669-79 Nov 1998

Results, conducted with novice and experienced searchers, revealed that the Boolean system performed better for tasks with a large number of relevant items, and that searcher experience level did not play a significant role.
