This is it! Selection and Preferences for Books
In this paper, we describe our participation in and the analysis of the interactive Social Book Search tasks as part of the Social Book Search Lab at CLEF 2015. In total, 192 participants from seven different institutions were recruited and completed the experiment. Through the combination of log data and questionnaires, a detailed picture of goal-oriented and open book search sessions was drawn. Our analysis focuses on the usage and assessment of the book-bag features, which allow users to store and annotate books or browse through related content. The categorization of user comments according to intentions for the book selection shows a tendency for personal interest dominated search sessions followed by topic and task or recommendation.
