How People Search: What They Get Right, What They Get Wrong

How well do people search on Google? Join us on Friday April 25 from 11:00am-12:00pm in the Faculty Lounge (room 323) when Google's Dr. Daniel Russell will present some findings about search behavior combining field work, lab studies, and logs analysis.

The Web Changes Everything

The Web is a dynamic, ever-changing collection of information, and the changes can affect, drive, and interfere with people's information seeking activities. Jaime Teevan will be here on May 6 to speak about how and why people revisit Web content that has changed, and how understanding the association between change and revisitation might improve browser, crawler, and search engine design.
