1. Article on implications/importance of visual search for "Millennials":

Marketing the Millennials: What They Expect From Their Library Experience

Patricia M. Duck and Randi Koeske

April 7–10, 2005, Minneapolis, Minnesota

www.ala.org/ala/acrl/acrlevents/duck-etal05.pdf

Relevant quotes:

Having grown up in an era of television and video games, they are visually oriented and are easily bored with sequential tasks and may have short attention spans.

This survey seems to confirm that while millennials are technologically savvy their visual orientation and short attention spans may hinder their efforts in doing research”

 

2. Interesting article about possible implications of sites that focus on image searching like Ditto and OSkope (are these ones possibly outside of the scope of this project though?): http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/ilaw/Interconnect/
