The increasing variety in full text databases and wider availability means a variety of users and uses. Recent research has suggested that full texts are being used for many different reasons, including: document location, fact retrieval, paragraph retrieval,browsing, and document delivery. The studies reported in this paper show that search strategies may need to differ for different uses or for different types of full text. The reported studies focus on full texts of non-technical magazine articles.
