Title
¬The nature of browsing
Source
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/333872380_The_Nature_of_Browsing
Year
2019
Abstract
The recent article by McKay et al. on browsing (2019) provides a valuable addition to the empirical literature of information science on this topic, and I read the descriptions of the various browsing cases with interest. However, the authors refer to my article on browsing (Bates, 2007) in ways that do not make sense to me and which do not at all conform to what I actually said.
