Abstract
In this paper, we examine the role search interface features play in information seeking across different categories and complexities of search tasks. We present a system called Search Buddy that provides features to enable exploration, filtering and browsing of information. Differing categories and complexities of search tasks were studied through qualitative and quantitative methods. We find specific user patterns in the frequency, points and context of search interface usage. This study highlight the potential value of contextualizing interface features to the type of task and stage of information seeking. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
