Kantor, Paul B.; Boros, Endre; Melamed, Benjamin; Menkov, Vladimir
Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v36 p536-45 1999
Describes a model of information seeking/retrieval in which the user's quest is seen as a generalized abstract "response function" representing the user's response to the information delivered by the system. The concept of an information quest, "Q," is illustrated with data collected in the Ant World Project at Rutgers University (New Jersey). (AEF)
