Finding facts vs. browsing knowledge in hypertext systems

G. Marchionini, B. Shneiderman
1988 Computer  
We then apply the framework to key design issues related to information retrieval in hypertext systems.  ...  Users' information retrieval depends on the cognitive representation (mental model) of a system's features, which is largely determined by the conceptual model designers provide through the human-computer  ...  The Electronic Encyclopedia is much more controlled than other hypertext systems in that jumps from article to article depend on a list of articles retrieved by a query.  ...

Expanding the notion of links

S. J. DeRose
1989 Proceedings of the second annual ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '89  
Even worse, many systems do not support hierarchies per se at all, though one can usually build fortuitously hierarchical structures; the fact that hierarchies are a real part of text structure means that  ...  studies into a Guide-based environment intended to facilitate the work of students, researchers, and clergy.  ...  in generating useful links between related structural elements (for example, collecting all section-title elements into a table of contents linked to the contents); 2) perform more effective retrieval  ...

From Card Catalogue to Web OPACs

Rashid Husain, Mehtab Alam Ansari
2006 DESIDOC Bulletin of Information Technology  
In the new system, data can be spread within computer and then the required entry can be retrieved immediately through OPAC system in any format.  ...  The Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) changed the traditional card catalogue system.  ...  The first generation of OPAC appeared in the early 1980s as crude finding lists, often based on circulation system records or based on simple MARC records, perhaps with a circulation, serials, or acquisitions  ...
