Information Searching and Search Models

Key terms related to information searching and search models are defined. A historic context is provided to illustrate the evolution of the four main digital environments that users interact with in their search process to offer readers background information regarding the transition from manual information systems to computer-based information retrieval (IR) systems, as well as the transition from intermediary searching to end-user searching. Emphasis is placed on the review of different levels of information searching. Entry in the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences (3rd ed.), Taylor & Francis, 2010.
