Integrated Faceted Browser and Direct Search to Enhance Information Retrieval in Text-Based Digital Libraries

Shea-Tinn Yeh, Yan Liu
2011 International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction  
For those who are not familiar with what the content of a specific text-based digital collection is or its data structure, the browse functionality offers the entry point to explore and obtain an overview  ...  In current digital library implementations, exploratory browsing is sometimes not available as an option.  ...  FLAMENCO is also an open source software providing web-based interface for browsing large collections of items.  ...

Hierarchical Knowledge Graphs: A Novel Information Representation for Exploratory Search Tasks [article]

Bahareh Sarrafzadeh, Adam Roegiest, Edward Lank
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Alongside the above study, we perform an additional mixed methods analysis of the effect of precision and recall on the performance of hierarchical knowledge graphs for two different exploratory search  ...  In exploratory search tasks, alongside information retrieval, information representation is an important factor in sensemaking.  ...  The authorvetted nature of hierarchical tables-of-contents was also perceived to be an asset absent from our hierarchical knowledge graphs.  ...

A DDC Visual Interface for Metadata Exploration

Xia Lin, Michael Khoo, Jae-wook Ahn, Ceri Binding, Douglas Tudhope, Hilary Jane Jones, Diane Massam
2015 International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications  
This paper presents a visualization interface for DDC-enriched metadata collections. Three sets of metadata from three different digital libraries were aggregated and re-indexed.  ...  Finally, an experiment was conducted to test and compare how subjects interacted with different views for metadata search, exploratory and resource discovery.  ...  Thanks also go to OCLC for permitting the use of DDC for this research.  ...

Finding cultural heritage images through a Dual-Perspective Navigation Framework

Yi-Ling Lin, Peter Brusilovsky, Daqing He
2016 Information Processing & Management  
Participants spent significantly less time, fewer interface interactions, and less back tracking to complete an exploratory task without an extra workload.  ...  In a controlled user study, participants effectively completed more exploratory tasks with the DPNF interface than with the tag-only interface.  ...  Table 5 shows the number of successful and failed cases for the two types of search tasks with three interfaces.  ...

Domain novices can navigate through the content in an exploratory way using three types of browsing (queries): diagram to content, diagram to diagram, and content to diagram.  ...  Typical searching and browsing tools are better utilized if users know what to search for or browse to.  ...  MDN facilitates exploratory navigation through three types of visual queries: diagram to diagram, content to diagram, and diagram to content. We have presented a design of an MDN system.  ...

2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we investigated both using user actions from log files, and the results of the User Engagement Scale, both of which came from a study of people interacting with a novel interface to an image  ...  Measures of user behaviour and user perception have been used to evaluate interactive information retrieval systems.  ...  This resulted in a three-factor solution, which accounted for approximately 76% of the variance. Table 4 displays the factor weights for three user behaviour factors.  ...

Balancing thread based navigation for targeted video search

Ork de Rooij, Cees G.M. Snoek, Marcel Worring
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 international conference on Content-based image and video retrieval - CIVR '08  
In this paper, we propose a novel method for fast and effective search trough large video collections by embedding multiple query methods into a single browsing environment.  ...  However, switching query methods often involves a change in query and browsing interface, which puts a heavy burden on the user.  ...  We define three types of browsers which vary in the decision of which threads to show and which threads to hide. See figure 2 for an overview of these three browsers.  ...
