Information Literacy and Search

April 3, 2006 at 3:03 pm Leave a comment

An interesting read describing different ways and/or reasons to search, by Donna Maurer:

"Four modes of Seeking Information and How to Design for Them"

Described are searches for:
1. Known items
2. Exploratory, have-some-idea searches
3. Exploratory, have-no-idea, or have-wrong-idea searches
4. Re-finding

I'd tagged this on del.icio.us, and while browsing other tagged links came across this site, on NoodleTools, "Information Literacy: Search Strategies, Choose the Best Search for Your Information Need."  File this one under Information Literacy, the concept is part of my proposed curriculum.
