Exploring and investigating: Supporting high-level search activities

Gina Venolia, Meredith Ringel Morris, and Dan Morris

Abstract

Much work has been done to improve search as an isolated act, yet little has been done to understand search as it relates to higher-level patterns of behavior, or to develop user interfaces to support these patterns. In this paper, we analyze exploratory and investigative search processes that involve performing several related searches over a period of time. We then discuss requirements for interfaces to support these tasks, and describe three prototype systems.
