Building Support for Web Information Gathering Tasks

Anwar Alhenshiri, Carolyn Watters, Michael Shepherd, Jack Duffy
2012 2012 45th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
Web information gathering includes tasks in which users attempt to locate, organize, and use information from different sources on the web to satisfy an information need, often over multiple sessions.  ...  An example is the case of writing a report or beginning an investigation. This paper presents the results of a research study to explore the difficulties users experience during such tasks.  ...  These reasons need to be further investigated in the context of web information gathering.  ...

User Behaviour during Web Search as Part of Information Gathering

Anwar Alhenshiri, Carolyn Watters, Michael Shepherd
2011 2011 44th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
This paper presents the results of a questionnaire on user behaviour during searching the Web as part of information gathering tasks.  ...  The results indicate that current Web tools lack important functionalities for supporting how users find, re-find, and manage information during Web information gathering tasks.  ...  Web information gathering is a task that represents between 51.70% [5] and 61.50% [22] of the overall tasks on the Web.  ...

A Goal-based Classification of Web Information Tasks

Melanie Kellar, Carolyn Watters, Michael Shepherd
2007 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Based on our analysis of participants' recorded tasks during the field study, as well as previous research, we have developed a goal-based classification of information tasks which describes user activities  ...  While researchers have been studying user activity on the Web since its inception, there remains a lack of understanding of the high level tasks in which users engage on the Web.  ...  Information Gathering Information Gathering tasks accounted for 13.4% (160/1192) of all web usage.  ...
