    Samenvatting

    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.
