Free book online: Search User Interfaces

Posted by Michael Gaigg

Marti Hearst generously made her upcoming book "Search User Interfaces" available for reading online. She is definitely not a newcomer to the scene and the book for sure not a Best-Of compilation, moreover the book is written in an academic fashion that backs up its theses usability studies, log studies, or some other form of proof (like it!) - like Harry Brignull states: "Caution: actual thought may be required when reading this book."

The book has two main parts: search fundamentals (Chapters 1-7) and advanced topics (Chapters 8-12).
