Current Research on Redundant Links

Has anyone seen fairly current research analyzing the trade-offs redundant
links (e.g., in-line links with text, as well as, the same links in lists
along the margins of a page)? I'm really looking for research instead of

Spotlight: Centrality of search

Recently I mentioned here Apple's upcoming Spotlight as a precursor of
technologies that may fundamentally change how we interact with our PCs in
many different areas. Several people wrote me privately to inquire about the
ramifications. I'm tardy with my response, but, on the eve of Microsoft's
response to Google Desktop Search, I'll try to outline briefly here how

Tips on selecting icons for web applications?

I'm looking for any resources or tips on selecting good icons for functions unique to a certain web application. I personally don't design icons myself, and think I could be successful using those already out there for purchase.

1) Should icons on a toolbar always be labeled, or will a user be able to learn them after using the application regularly?
