Which Log for Which Information? Gathering Multilingual Data from Different Log File Types [chapter]

Maria Gäde, Vivien Petras, Juliane Stiller
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, a comparative analysis of different log file types and their potential for gathering information about user behavior in a multilingual information system is presented.  ...  Based on actual examples from the Europeana portal, we compare and contrast different types of log files and the information gleaned from them.  ...  We would like to thank Sjoerd Siebinga from the Europeana Foundation for implementing the Europeana Clickstream Logger, his continuous support and great patience in answering our questions.  ...

User Behavior and Evaluation of Multilingual Information Access in Digital Libraries

Maria Gäde
2011 Bulletin of IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries  
I present the Europeana Clickstream Logger, which logs and gathers extended information on user behavior, and show first examples of the data collection possibilities.  ...  Building on previous experiences, the study focuses on a combination of log file analysis and an usability test on user needs and desired features for multilingual access based on a functional digital  ...  Especially, I want to thank Sjoerd Siebinga for developing the ClickStreamLogger.  ...

Leveraging User Interaction and Social Tagging for Improving Cross-lingual Information Access in Digital Libraries

Juliane Stiller
2011 Bulletin of IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries  
The dissertation wants to extend the scope of interactive cross-lingual information retrieval by harnessing user input as a mean for improving cross-lingual information retrieval tools.  ...  To achieve this, user input at different interaction points will be evaluated.  ...  How can the data gathering in different systems look like? Log files are the common approach but are there different methods possible?  ...

Text Mining for User Query Analysis [article]

Anne Chardonnens, Simon Hengchen, Humboldt-Universität Zu Berlin, Humboldt-Universität Zu Berlin
2017 International Symposium of Information Science  
This paper explores how text mining techniques can help automate the analysis of large volumes of log files.  ...  In order to dive into the mind of their end users, institutions can explore queries from a digital catalogue.  ...  Collecting Among the three main possibilities to collect user queries (web log files, query parameters and JavaScript), we choose the first one, which allows us to gather additional information.  ...

Second, to study how health information seeking behavior can be used to predict context features that can, therefore, be gathered and used, without disturbing the user with explicit questions.  ...  Both areas have been gaining interest from the research community but it's not frequent to see the combination of both.  ...  This data set is different from the SAPO and SAPO Saúde log files as it has information on a complete web session and not only on the search engine session.  ...
