  11. 11. Ellis model • Based on Ellis model we could see that less knowledge on subject matter would increased details searching on the subject • Individual habits on searching the www based on chaining and browsing the information • Question based on local information take less time and self directed
  12. 12. Berrypicking Model Berry Picking Model Assumption that the user's information need is static and the information seeking process is one of successively refining a query until all and only those documents relevant to the original information need have been retrieved
  13. 13. Berrypicking Technique • We agree that after few attempts to find the answer . We used this technique to locate the information based on clues that we get. • It might take some time but it will lead us to the information that we need
  14. 14. Differences Between Novice and Experienced Users in Searching Information on The World Wide Web Hurtienne and Wandtke, 1997 Online users are confronted with rapidly increasing amounts of information as epitomized by the buzzword "information overload." While skills necessary for browsing individual websites seem to be available to users after only minimal training Pollock and Hockley, 1997 considerably more experience is required for query-based searching Chen, Houston, Sewell, and Schatz, 1998 User must have experience with the system where the information is stored, including skills in navigating through the information system and knowledge of how the information is organized
  15. 15. WEB EXPERT • We also found that web experts make use of advanced search options like Boolean operators, modifiers, phrase search etc., much more frequently than the average user • Experts frequently complained about lacking relevant domain knowledge regarding individual search questions and were highly aware of this obstacle while being confident of their technical competence.
  16. 16. Conclusion • Information Retrieval skills is important to find accurate information on the net • To categorized novice user and expert user is based on how the information is retrieved and how reliable the information that has been retrieved. • Enhancing general knowledge and also subject matter expertise is crucial in information retrieval skills and knowledge

  18. 18. Question Did the first set of questions experience makes You become more confident to answer the second part of the question? Yes, after answering the first set of question. It helps me to answer second question more confident and with improve technique of searching
  19. 19. Describe Your Experience in Searching Information I would say that question given to us was very challenging and interesting. This is the first time I was given question that looks easy and confidently I felt that I can easily answer all the question. Surprisingly after seeking information for the first two question, I felt frustrated cannot finding the exact answer within the time that I have set. if the question within the range of my general knowledge, I can easily answer that less than 10 minutes. If the question not within my general knowledge or subject expert. It takes me longer time to understand the question and also finding the meaning of few terms and definition related to questions. After manage to find all the answer my frustration become a happy ending to me, It makes me wanted to find more information on the web. Thanks Dr. Fuziah for given us such a beautiful experience seeking on the web. This seeking experience will give me a clear view of the roles of reference desk and also librarian in this challenging virtual world.
