The Concept of Information Seeking Strategies and Its Use in the Design of Information Retrieval Systems

N. J. Belkin and C. Cool

The support of effective interaction of the user with the other components of the system is a central problem for information retrieval. In this paper, we present a theory of such interactions taking place within a space of information seeking strategies, and discuss how such a concept might be used to design for effective interaction. In particular, we relate this view to ideas of case-based reasoning, and show how these two concepts can complement one another in the design of information retrieval systems.
