In the paper we present the organization of the INEX 2010 interactive track. For the 2010 experiments the iTrack has gathered data on user search behavior in a collection consisting of book metadata taken from the online bookstore Amazon and the social cataloguing application LibraryThing. The collected data represents traditional bibliographic metadata, user-generated tags and reviews and promotional texts and reviews from publishers and professional reviewers. In this year’s experiments we designed two search task categories, which were set to represent two different stages of work task processes. In addition we let the users create a task of their own, which is used as a control task. In the paper we describe the methods used for data collection and the tasks performed by the participants.
