Abstract

Federated content collections are important for providing access to multiple content repositories. Our paper provides preliminary results from a large-scale study of user access to federated content collections via the Dogpile.com Web search engine. We examined differences in searching patterns to various federated content collections by analyzing a subset of queries submitted by searchers on Dogpile.com. Findings include differences in content collection searches. Image and audio searches were longer sessions but shorter queries. Most users view few results pages.
