Studies on user characteristics claim that individuals are different in their abilities and reacting to a system. Certain types of individuals are flexible and efficient in their uses of online catalogues and databases while others are not. There are many individual variables affecting information seeking behaviors. Among other user variables, this study focused on cognitive styles, competency in using computer technology, and online search experience, and examined how these variables influence users' search performance and choice of navigational tools in online retrieval environments. This study also examined how students utilize the features of academic library online retrieval systems, particularly online library catalogs and databases.
