Andrew Lucas The decline of complex search
Jinfo Article

10th February 2017

By Andrew Lucas


As data analytics becomes the value-add for information providers, is the use of complex search by both end-users and information professionals in decline and is there resistance to training in this area? Andrew Lucas talks to industry leaders, academics and professional associations to find out their views on this and see how their organisations are responding. Commentary includes comments from Charlie Inskip of UCL and Nick Poole of CILIP, plus representatives from Dow Jones, InfoDesk and LexisNexis.
