Do we know what readers need?
Did you read Valerie Nesset’s article in the June 2016 issue of The Indexer? It was on the findings of a study of the information search behaviors of elementary school children, and it offered new insights on index usability.
Dr. Nesset’s area of research is information-seeking behavior and information literacy. She’ll be sharing even more insights when she presents “Indexing for our users, not ourselves” at the ISC/SCI Conference June 2-3 in Montreal.
