Search Procedures reflects on a series of studies carried out over a four year period
in the late 1970s. It was published at an interesting time for Information Retrieval.
Written before Information Retrieval became synonymous with online information seeking it focuses on Information Retrieval within Public Libraries, then the
major location for everyday information seeking. While many of his contemporaries focused on information seeking in academic or special library settings, Peter
chose instead to focus a setting that was visited by a more diverse set of people
with a broader range of information needs.
