Interaction in Information Searching and Retrieval.
Journal of Documentation, v56 n4 p431-39 Jul 2000
Explores the concepts of interaction and interactivity presented in different theoretical models in the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI) and information-seeking/searching behavior, and relates these to information retrieval (IR) research. Suggests that interaction in HCI is primarily concerned with establishing a user/system dialogue at the user interface and does not address the interactive characteristics of IR operational tasks. Discusses three principle aspects of interaction. (AEF)
