Abstract. The objective of this research was to investigate the extent to which thesauri have the potential to support the search behaviour of nanoscience and technology researchers while interacting with an electronic book digital library. Transaction log data was obtained from a nanoscience and technology digital library to investigate the nature, type and characteristics of users ’ queries and search terms. The specific objectives was to assess the extent to which users’ search terms matched with those found in two well-established thesauri attached o the INSPEC and Compendex databases. 1
