Abstract
Presents a selective literature review covering the process of browsing as a means of searching for information. References are selected in order to illustrate the major themes and to bring out points which have not been emphasised before. The main points covered in the review include: consideration of browsing as an important, but under rated and little understood, form of information access; the ability in browsing to find analogies, connections, and new lines of thought; the potential of browsings as an ideal technique for accasional or non expert users; the ability to apply browsing to both paper based and computerized information retrieval; and the ability to search for information in a semi-random fashion leading to serendipitous linkage. Concludes that, despite the acknowledges importance of browsing, the increased effort being expended in making computerized systems browsable and the many references to the concept in the computer literature, there is still a lack of real understanding of the basic concepts of the process
