Abstract
In the project we wish to expand and continue our work by developing an information retrieval module and by further refining the two selected information visualization techniques. Building the search module will first require an analysis of different scenarios within the information seeking process as well as an examination of possibilities for implementing the FRBR concept in the display of results. Considering the complexity of bibliographic data as well as the variety of searches, the display will need to be designed in a way that will best answer the user’s search request and at the same time offer links to related and potentially interesting entities. The development of a user interface search module will therefore combine two approaches: on the one hand it will entail a comprehensive conceptual design, while on the other hand it will seek the engagement of users who will be involved in designing and testing early prototype designs. As a continuation of our previous work, we also wish to find a solution that will enable an integration of network relationships between related entities within the hierarchical layout as this shortcoming has been so far addressed by using several parallel visualizations. Within the framework of the proposed project we will therefore iteratively develop and test the information retrieval module. The module will take into account different levels of complexity of bibliographic data (Figure 3 in Attachment) which effect the complexity of the results list and consequentially the decision on how to show the retrieved results to the user. The prototype will be developed in cooperation with dr. Trond Aalberg (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim) and will be tested in an extensive user study. The project will be concluded with a test implementation in dLib – Digital library of Slovenia run by a partner organization in the project, the National and University Library.
Significance for science
The results are important and appliccable in several aspects. First they can be used in practice, since the design principles developed will be used by libraries and vendors to design innovative user interfaces of bibliographic informatin systems and display of frbrized data. On the other side the development of implementation models and analysis of user behaviour contributes to our basic knowledge in the domain of information science. The importanc and impact of this project goes beyond the library domain and bibliographic information systems. The community investigating Open Linked Data is facing the problems of netwok relationships and a huge ammount of data and has already recognized the potential of proposed approaches. Therefore the future development of the display of complex result sets and implementation of FRBR concepts will contribute to the development of the Semantic Web.
Significance for the country
The results could potentially be used directly by IZUM in the developent of the COBISS system. At the time of the duration of the project, IZUM was not interested in the topc. This has changed, though: IZUM is our paprtner in the next project, funded by ARRS and this could lead to fruitful cooperation. Due to the specific situation in Slovenia (IZUM is the only provider of bibliographic information systems), there are no other potential beneficiaries of our research results.
