In this paper we look at what may be learned from a
comparative study examining non-technical users with a
background in social science browsing and querying
metadata. Four query tasks were carried out with a natural
language interface and with an interface that uses a web
paradigm with hyperlinks. While it can be difficult to
attribute differences in performance to specific design
features, a qualitative analysis of the user behavior provides
some insight into the task and problematic aspects of
existing interfaces. In general it was found that casual
subjects have difficulties recognizing typical ontology
based concepts like objects, attributes and values.
