Pattern Group J: Making Site Search Fast and Relevant

J1 SEARCH ACTION MODULE

Bernard, M . (2001) Developing schemas for the location of common Web objects. Usability News [online], 3(1). (http://psychology.wichita.edu/surl/usabilitynews/3W/web_object.htm)
This study asked 304 participants how they expected to see common Web objects on a page, such as the Home link, internal links, external links, the search engine, and advertisements. The participants expected the Home link to be at the top left and at the center bottom of a Web page, internal links to run along the left side, external links to run on the bottom left and on the right-hand side, search engines to be at the top right or near the top center, and advertisements to be at the top.

English, J. , M. Hearst , R. Sinha , K. Swearingen , and K. Yee . (2002) Flexible Search and Navigation Using Faceted Metadata. (http://bailando.sims.berkeley.edu/papers/flamenco02.pdf)
This paper describes Flamenco, an advanced search and navigation system that lets nonexperts explore large information spaces. The key idea is to provide a flexible interface that lets people search and navigate through metadata—that is, additional data describing the actual content (for example, the author, date, and publisher of a news article).
