One of these things is not like the others: how users search different information resources | Bibliographic service in library | Scoop.it

Transaction log analyses are common practice to understand user behavior in both online databases and library catalogues. While there has been significant work done in each of these domains, there is little work comparing user queries between library catalogues and online resources. In this paper we report on an exploratory comparison between searches performed via the same interface in three different search systems: a library catalogue, an online research database, and Google Scholar.
