Information Search Research Study

I received the following email today from the CHI listserv. One would expect that the more data they gather, the better their results will be, so I thought I would try to give as much publicity to the research as possible.

I’m a researcher at the Tampere Unit for Computer Human Interaction (University of Tampere, Finland). We are conducting an on-line survey about experienced web users’ strategies in work-related information search. The collected information will be used in developing novel search interfaces that aim at facilitating information search and utilization from the web. The study involves a questionnaire consisting of general questions about your background and more specific questions related to your web search strategies. You can complete the questionnaire anonymously. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.

To participate in the study, please go to The questionnaire will be available until the 27th of August 2004.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Anne Aula.

Thank you for your participation!

The request comes from the Information Visualization Research Group, Tampere Unit for Computer-Human Interaction at the University of Tampere, Finland.
