An investigation of the search behaviour associated with Ingwersen's three types of information needs

Pia Borlund, Sabine Dreier
2014 Information Processing & Management  
Ingwersen (1996) associates a given search behaviour to each of the three types of information needs, which are analytically deduced, but not yet empirically tested.  ...  Thus the objective of the study is to investigate whether empirical data does, or does not, conform to the predictions derived from the three types of information needs.  ...  Schneider for the many interesting discussions on the use of statistics, the power of sample techniques, effect sizes as well as the many other interesting topics we have come across in those discussions  ...

Human-computer interaction

Khamsum Kinley, Dian Tjondronegoro, Helen Partridge, Sylvia Edwards
2012 Proceedings of the 24th Australian Computer-Human Interaction Conference on - OzCHI '12  
Query reformulations have emerged as an important component of Web search behaviour and humancomputer interaction (HCI) because a user's success of information retrieval (IR) depends on how he or she formulates  ...  This paper discusses users' query reformulation behaviour while searching information on the Web.  ...  This paper aims to investigate (1) the associations within query reformulation types, and (2) the effects of users' cognitive styles on their query reformulation behaviour.  ...

An analysis of two approaches in information retrieval: From frameworks to study designs

Kalervo Järvelin
2007 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
This article is an exercise in such an analysis, focusing on two significant approaches to IR, the Lab IR approach and Ingwersen's Cognitive IR approach.  ...  Thus each approach is capable of contributing very differently to understanding and developing information access. The article also discusses integrating the approaches at the study design level.  ...  An example of non-Lab IR type of explanation relates to the classification of information needs (see above). The framework suggests that information access behavior differs by the need class.  ...

Chapter 9 Understanding Casual-Leisure Information Behaviour [chapter]

David Elsweiler, Max L. Wilson, Brian Kirkegaard Lunn
2011 Library and Information Science  
The results of these two studies are then used to define an initial model of casual-leisure information behaviour, which highlights the key differences between casual-leisure scenarios and typical information  ...  Originally grounded in library and information science, the majority of information behaviour and information seeking theories focus on task-based scenarios where users try to resolve information needs  ...  Typical models of search-focused information behaviours would identify an information need, and have to resolve that with Information Seeking and Information Retrieval.  ...

Expeditions through image jungles

Originality/value: We describe the properties of an 'information expedition'; the image seeking behaviour exhibited by journalists in an online environment, and contend that it is significantly different  ...  Findings: We report the findings of a study to investigate image search, retrieval and use by creative professionals who routinely use images as part of their work in an online environment.  ...  Information expeditions We propose that the behaviour observed of the journalists' image search behaviour is analogous to an expedition.  ...

The development of a method for the evaluation of interactive information retrieval systems

Pia Borlund, Peter Ingwersen
1997 Journal of Documentation  
The method is also based on a mixture of simulated and real information needs, and involves a group of test persons as well as assessments made by individual panel members.  ...  The method takes into account the dynamic nature of information needs which are assumed to develop over time for the same user, a variability which is presumed to be strongly connected to the processes  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors wish to express their gratitude to Information Officer Hanne Balch Petersen and Professor Micheline Beaulieu for their conceptual and methodological support during the project  ...
