Su, Louise T.; Chen, Hsin-liang
Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v36 p98-114 1999
Examines how undergraduate students used four search engines--Alta Vista, Excite, Infoseek, and Lycos--to retrieve information for their studies or personal interests and how they evaluated the interaction and search results retrieved by the four engines. Measures were based on five evaluation criteria: relevance, efficiency, utility, user satisfaction, and connectivity. (AEF)
