Two studies were conducted to investigate the cognitive processes involved in online document-based information retrieval. These studies led to the development of five computational models of online document retrieval. These models were then incorporated into the design of an "intelligent" document-based retrieval system. Following a discussion of this system, we discuss the broader implications of our research for the design of information retrieval systems.
