Do You Have an Ear for Searching?
Brandt, D. Scott
Computers in Libraries, v19 n5 p42-44 May 1999
Discusses mental models for online searching and the importance of understanding the user mental models and their search needs in order to teach searching and to help them effectively. Suggests that librarians should try to match the user's perspective first, not just teach a search strategy that is too complicated. (LRW)
