wikiSearch – From Access to Use [chapter]

Elaine G. Toms, Lori McCay-Peet, R. Tayze Mackenzie
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Yet many DLs hide much of the user activity involved in the process from the user. In this research we developed an interface, wikiSearch, to support that process.  ...  The interface was tested by 96 people who used the system in a laboratory to resolve multiple tasks. Assessment was through use, usability testing and closed and open perception questions.  ...  the support of a technical person to be able to use wikiSearch 1.44 0.86 6 I thought there was too much inconsistency in wikiSearch 2.93 1.43 8 I found wikiSearch very cumbersome to use 2.50 1.34  ...

Examining the generalizability of the User Engagement Scale (UES) in exploratory search

Heather L. O'Brien, Elaine G. Toms
2013 Information Processing & Management  
We used Principal Axis Factor Analysis and Multiple Regression to examine the factor structure of UES items and the relationships amongst factors.  ...  In a typical laboratory-style study, 381 participants performed three relatively complex search tasks using a novel search interface, and responded to the UES immediately upon completion.  ...  mouseover access to page descriptions.  ...

Galaxysearch - Discovering the Knowledge of Many by Using Wikipedia as a Meta-Searchindex [article]

Hauke Fuehres, Peter A. Gloor, Michael Henninger, Reto Kleeb, Keiichi Nemoto
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a dynamic map of knowledge generated from Wikipedia pages and the Web URLs contained therein.  ...  GalaxySearch provides answers to the questions we don't know how to ask, by constructing a semantic network of the most relevant pages in Wikipedia related to a search term.  ...  Our goal is to create "WikiPulse", a system dedicated to finding and visualizing latest news from Wikipedia. It builds on WikiSearch and WikiMaps, customizing the search function for actuality.  ...

The Relationship Between User Perception and User Behaviour in Interactive Information Retrieval Evaluation [chapter]

Mengdie Zhuang, Elaine G. Toms, Gianluca Demartini
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.  ...  The Explorer was accessed using a custom-developed interface (see Fig. 1 [12] ), adapted from wikiSearch [22] , with three types of access: 1) hierarchical category browser, 2) search box, and 3)  ...

Chance Encounters in the Digital Library [chapter]

Elaine G. Toms, Lori McCay-Peet
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this research we embedded a tool in a novel interface to suggest other pages to examine in order to assess how that tool might be used while doing focused searching.  ...  While only 40% of the participants used the tool, all assessed its usefulness or perceived usefulness.  ...  Questionnaire to identify prior knowledge and experience, 4) Tutorial and practice time using the wikiSearch system, 5) Pre-Task Questionnaire, 6) Assigned Task to be completed using wikiSearch integrated  ...

Efficient Radial Pattern Keyword Search on Knowledge Graphs in Parallel [article]

Yueji Yang, Anthony K. H. Tung
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Typical keyword search approaches aim at finding a concise subgraph from a KG, which can reflect a close relationship among all input keywords.  ...  However, such a result may not meet user information need because it relies on the scoring function to decide what keywords to link closer.  ...  On CPU, it is easy to do the checking because accessing H is easy.  ...
