  • Study into how people search for information

    We are a group of researchers: Prof. Fabio Crestani, Dr. Monica Landoni and Maram Barifah from the faculty of Informatics at USI. We are conducting a study into how people search for information.
 It would be a great help for us if you could spend few minutes and participate in this study

    We will make no attempt to identify you and data gathered will be used only for research purposes.

    Your contribution will help us to understand searchers and their needs, in order to move towards better search experience.

    The experiment consists of three steps:

    1 - Answer a pre-questionnaire before they start searching for their own information needs.

    2 - Search on the catalogue for their information needs

    3- Fill up the post-questionnaire

    The duration of the full study depends on the time taken for running individual searches, filling the questionnaires takes less than 10 minutes. 

    Join in and you could win a prize!
