Effective E-browsing: Access, Discovery, and Connections.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Browsing is an essential component to discovery. Understanding the foundations of browsing patterns and preferences is crucial in developing effective e-browsing environments. It’s important to understand the way researchers in diverse disciplines have described their discoveries in terms of browsing and searching. Examining the works of scientists, social scientists, and humanists through the lens of discovery will reveal essential components to be aware of in developing e-browsing environments. In turning to a wide range of sources, often outside traditional library literature, we deepen our understanding of what it means to browse in an electronic environment and more effectively articulate concerns and opportunities to developers.
