Abstract

In our contribution we use log-analysis to investigate whether participants in the INEX Interactive Social Book Search are able to use the new multi-stage interface and whether it provides any benefits over the traditional IR baseline interface. Our initial results show that participants are able to successfully use the new multi-stage interface, with no significant learning effects. Additionally, for the open task, the multi-stage interface actually enables the participants to collect more books than when using the baseline interface.
