How Users Search and Discover: User Scenarios

How Users Search and Discover: User Scenarios

By Christine Stohn, Senior Product Manager, Discovery & Delivery, Ex Libris

Last time, you will recall, I described how Ex Libris user studies were designed to provide a better understanding of users’ discovery needs, by placing their search scenarios in their real-world context.  During the collection and analysis of a wide range of user case studies, three core discovery concepts repeatedly appeared in our user scenarios:

  • Search and find
  • Exploration
  • Learning
  • Personalization

In this post, I’m looking at these concepts in the context of two different scenarios that I see as fairly representative of various classes of users.”
