Abdullah, N.; Gibb, F. (2008) Using a task-based approach in evaluating the usability of BoBIs in an e-book environment. In: 30th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2008), MAR 30-APR 03, 2008 , Glasgow, SCOTLAND.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reports on a usability evaluation of BoBIs (Back-of-the-book Indexes) as searching and browsing tools in an e-book environment. This study employed a task-based approach and within-subject design. The retrieval performance of a BoBI was compared with a ToC and Full-Text Search tool in terms of their respective effectiveness and efficiency for finding information in e-books. The results demonstrated that a BoBI was significantly more efficient (faster) and useful compared to a ToC or Full-Text Search tool for finding information in an e-book environment.
