Augustine, Susan; Greene, Courtney
College & Research Libraries, v63 n4 p354-65 Jul 2002
Discusses results of a usability study at the University of Illinois Chicago that investigated whether Internet search engines have influenced the way students search library Web sites. Results show students use the Web site's internal search engine rather than navigating through the pages; have difficulty interpreting library terminology; and prefer human assistance. (Author/LRW)
