Description : This literature review selectively covers material on end-user searching published between 1971 and 1988. The first section discusses end-user search systems--e.g., multipurpose systems developed for end-users, simplified versions of traditional systems, gateway systems, and CD-ROM versions of databases. This section also discusses the complexity of offline search software. Research on end-user searching by various groups or in special settings are addressed in the second section, e.g., scientists, physicians, academics, schools, lawyers, journalists, brokers, and libraries. The next two sections consider end-user training and performance. A discussion of future developments in end-user searching concludes the review. The 155 references listed are organized by broad topics corresponding to sections of the review. (MES)
