Title:Log Analysis of Academic Digital Library: User Query Patterns
Author(s):Han, Hyejung; Jeong, Wooseob; Wolfram, Dietmar

Abstract:This study analyzed user queries submitted to an academic digital library for four weeks (July 2012 to August 2012). We examined users' query behaviors and compared external and internal users' query patterns for image-based collections. The results of this study identified the most frequently occurring queries, the mean of query strings, the term frequency, the most frequently used word pairs and the relationship between query terms. Transaction log analysis is useful to examine users' information seeking behavior effectively due to the richness of data. The query analysis of this study shows not only users' information seeking behaviors for image-based collections but also the differences between external and internal users' query patterns clearly.
