Démarche d'interrogation documentaire et navigation

Abstract : What do users do when information seeking ? How should the search interface be designed to assist them ? We examine some models in information
science and cognitive psychology. We analyze the validity of the models. An experiment conducted with experts and novices illustrates the ability of planning
and constraints concepts to explain the search processes that users implement. System design orientations corresponding to each model are presented. A thesaurus, a classification, a semantic net is a conceptual layer. Getting it to be
displayed and navigated should facilitate both planning and taking account of constraints. It could also better articulate the top down and bottom up search processes. Two experimental studies are exposed. Consecutively to their interesting and ambiguous results, some research topics are suggested.
