Investigating information retrieval support techniques for different information-seeking strategies

  title={Investigating information retrieval support techniques for different information-seeking strategies},
  author={Xiaojun Yuan and Nicholas J. Belkin},
We report on a study that investigated the efficacy of four different interactive information retrieval (IIR) systems, each designed to support a specific information-seeking strategy (ISS). These systems were constructed using different combinations of IR techniques (i.e., combinations of different methods of representation, comparison, presentation and navigation), each of which was hypothesized to be well suited to support a specific ISS. We compared the performance of searchers in each such… CONTINUE READING
