Presentation slides


This study aims to examine search tactics differences between the novice and expert e-resources users of ten years ago and today. Think-aloud protocol transcriptions of e-resources searchers gathered ten years ago and today will be used for extracting search statements for statistical analysis. Comparison covers three main areas: source selected, use of search terms strategies (Hembrooke et al., 2005) such as broadening and refining, and use of system-based search tactics. This research could be useful for generalizing a list of search tactics to shortcut the learning curve of novice e-resources searchers to become experienced searchers.
