Improving Europeana Search Experience Using Query Logs [chapter]

Diego Ceccarelli, Sergiu Gordea, Claudio Lucchese, Franco Maria Nardini, Gabriele Tolomei
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
One of the most important techniques for enhancing users search experience in large information spaces, is the exploitation of the knowledge contained in query logs.  ...  Our analysis highlights some significative differences between the Europeana query log and the historical data collected by general purpose Web Search Engine logs.  ...  A Query Recommender System for Europeana The analysis conducted in the previous section shows that the search experience of the user interacting with Europeana could be improved.  ...

When entities meet query recommender systems

Diego Ceccarelli, Sergiu Gordea, Claudio Lucchese, Franco Maria Nardini, Raffale Perego
2013 Proceedings of the 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '13  
In this paper, we explore the use of entities that can be extracted from a query log to enhance query recommendation.  ...  In particular, we use a large query log recorded by the Europeana portal, a central access point to the descriptions of more than 20 million cultural heritage objects, and we extend a state-of-the-art  ...  Acknowledgements We acknowledge the Europeana Foundation for providing us the query logs used in our experimentation. This work was partially supported by the EU project InGeoCLOUDS (no. 297300).  ...

A quantitative evaluation of query expansion in domain specific information retrieval

Mitra Akasereh
2013 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
To do so we considered different strategies based on blind-query expansion as well as using external resource, namely Wikipedia.  ...  Our results show that expansion with both pseudo-relevant documents and external resources improve the retrieval. While the impact of expansion using an external resource is more significant.  ...  The topics are extracted from Europeana queries logs. Thus they convey the real users' information needs in a CH search context.  ...

Polish Monolingual Task within Cultural Heritage in CLEF (CHiC) 2013. Wrocław Runs

Adam Pawlowski
2013 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
The objective of the experiment described in the article was the evaluation of Polish digital resources searchable by the engine Europeana.  ...  The overall results proved that the IR process concerning Polish resources searchable by Europeana require significant improvement.  ...  Conclusions The experiment shows that working on Polish topics in Europeana is not sufficiently effective and important improvements are necessary in the search engine.  ...

Multilingual Access to Digital Libraries: The Europeana Use Case / Mehrsprachiger Zugang zu Digitalen Bibliotheken: Europeana / Accès multilingue aux bibliothèques numériques: Le cas d'Europeana

Juliane Stiller, Maria Gäde, Vivien Petras
2013 Information, Wissenschaft und Praxis  
In particular, Europeana, the European digital library, archive and museum for cultural heritage was studied with a focus on multilingual interactions.  ...  An analysis of existing information systems in the GLAM-domain (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) was conducted to establish and collect solutions for searching, browsing and interacting with  ...  Similarly, queries in different languages can be mapped and used for improving translation resources.  ...

Leveraging user interaction and collaboration for improving multilingual information access in digital libraries

Juliane Stiller
2010 Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '10  
This dissertation aims at harnessing user-system interaction, extracting the added value and integrating it back into the system to improve cross-lingual information retrieval for successive users.  ...  This will, among others, include interaction during user-assisted query translations, implicit and explicit relevance feedback and social tags.  ...  Improving existing dictionaries by adding translations entered into the system by the user, e.g. directly from the user or via log files analysis.  ...

Chris Dijkshoorn, Lora Aroyo, Guus Schreiber, Jan Wielemaker, Lizzy Jongma
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We apply an existing graph search algorithm to this data, using entries from the museum query log as test set.  ...  In this study we consider wether, and to what extent, additional semantics in the form of Linked Data can help diversifying search results. We undertake this study in the domain of cultural heritage.  ...  The code developed for these experiments as well as the resulting data are available online 8 . Query Logs We used the query logs of January 2014 of the Rijksmuseum.  ...

Juliane Stiller
2011 Bulletin of IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries  
This will among others include interaction during user-assisted query translations, implicit and explicit relevance feedback and social tags.  ...  The goal is to support the users in formulating effective queries and selecting the documents which satisfy their information needs regardless of the language of the documents.  ...  Improving existing dictionaries by adding translations entered into the system by the user, e.g. directly form the user or via log files analysis of different user interaction during the search process  ...

2012 arXiv   pre-print
Being held for the first time, no prior experience with the new data set, a document dump of Europeana with ca. 23 million documents, exists.  ...  We used two methods that build on concept extraction from Wikipedia and on a method that applied co-occurrence statistics on the available Europeana corpus.  ...  As stated by the official lab guideline, the topics "are taken from real Europeana query logs and comprise queries for people, places, work titles (e.g. Mona Lisa), events or subjects".  ...
