Abstract or Description

The growing use of Internet-connected mobile devices demands
that we reconsider search user interface design in light of the
context and information needs specific to mobile users. In this
paper the authors present a framework of mobile information
needs, juxtaposing search motives—casual, lookup, learn, and
investigate—with search types—informational, geographic,
personal information management, and transactional.
