On hierarchical web catalog integration with conceptual relationships in thesaurus

Ing-Xiang Chen, Jui-Chi Ho, Cheng-Zen Yang
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
The Web catalog integration problem concerns integration of documents in a source catalog into a destination catalog.  ...  This study presents a hierarchical catalog integration (EHCI) approach based on the conceptual thesauri extracted from the source catalog and the destination catalog to improve performance.  ...  The authors would also like to express many thanks to the anonymous reviewers for their precious suggestions.  ...

Survey of learners' knowledge structures: Rationales, methods and instruments

Peiling Wang, Stephen Bales, Jason Rieger, Yan Zhang
2005 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
The ultimate goal is also two-fold: (1) to facilitate learning in introductory courses by adopting metacognitive tools and (2) to advance information retrieval by incorporating effective knowledge structures  ...  The purpose of the study is two-fold: (1) to investigate how learners build and organize concepts learned along the process and (2) to design data collection methods and instruments.  ...  Domain knowledge is ontological, specific, and typically learned in school as subject matter. Domain-specific knowledge consists of concepts and their relationships, similar to a thesaurus.  ...

How We Construct Subjects: A Feminist Analysis

Hope A. Olson
2008 Library Trends  
In thesauri and subject heading lists we privilege hierarchical relationships, reflected in the syndetic structure of broader and narrower terms, over all other relationships.  ...  This article explores current and potential elements of connected knowing in subject access with a focus on the relationships, both paradigmatic and syntagmatic, between concepts.  ...  to allow multiple models to coexist-separately or layered or even integrated with each other.  ...

2016 International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries  
In practice it includes translated metadata, symmetrical multilingual thesaurus, or any traditional indexing tools. iOPAC embodies efforts focused on conceptual levels as expected from librarians.  ...  The conceptual model of imagetic indexing shows how images are related to topics and 'key-images' are interpreted as nomens to implement the FRSAD model.  ...  In addition the diagram above shows how nomens are related to images (key-image descriptors) and traditional relationships with thesaurus.  ...

2010 Ecological Informatics  
Tools to assist with metadata capture and translation, such as localized metadata editors and a multilingual environmental thesaurus, are needed and will be developed in the near future.  ...  In the longer term, ILTER will cooperate with other communities to develop ontologies that may be used to automate the process of translation and will produce the most linguistically and semantically accurate  ...  Workshop participants received travel support from the ILTER Network in their own country or from GBIF. The comments of two anonymous reviewers improved the manuscript.  ...

Knowledge Navigation in Networked Digital Libraries [chapter]

Mike P. Papazoglou, Jeroen Hoppenbrouwers
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Due to these reasons, networked digital libraries with rapid growth in their volume of documents, document diversity, and terminological variations are becoming increasingly di cult to manage.  ...  Formulating precise and e ective queries in document retrieval systems requires the users to predict which terms appear in documents relevant to their information needs.  ...  ., an appropriate extension of the in-house Attent thesaurus, is used to represent concepts, terms and their relationships in a conceptual graph structure, akin to an associative thesaurus.  ...
