    Online Catalogs: What Users and Librarians Want 1 Introduction “A persistent shortcoming in the decision-making process [about library database quality] that needs to be addressed is the lack of serious research into user needs and benefi ts, and the actual impact on users of database quality decisions.”1. With this book, he makes two major contributions to the field of information retrieval: first, a new way to look at topical relevance, complementing the two dominant models, i.e., the classical probabilistic model and the language modeling approach, and which explicitly combines documents, queries, and relevance in a single formalism; second, a Cited by:

    Information retrieval is the science of searching for information in a document, searching for documents themselves, and also searching for the metadata that describes data, and for databases of texts, images or sounds. Automated information retrieval systems are used to reduce what has been called information overload. An IR system is a software system that .

    The report begins with an illustrated overview of retrieval features and subject searching in current second-generation OPACs, which is followed by a discussion of the problems and shortcomings of conventional OPACs and online information retrieval systems, especially with regard to subject access and retrieval methods.

Although the cognitive ability “perceptual speed” is known to influence search performance by end-users, previous research has not established the mechanism by which this influence occurred.

Results from educational psychology suggest that learning that occurs during searching is likely to be influenced by perceptual by:   Standard Information Retrieval Systems (IRS) can be used to retrieve information in response to specific requests, but they have no powers of adaption to particular users over repeated sessions.

This paper describes a learning system which uses relevance feedback from a probabilistic IRS to incrementally evolve a context for a user, over a number of online by: Current technologies have increased both the quantity of information available and the modes of access to it. General tools to provide access should be adaptable to individual contexts and needs.

Our research involves the use of learning and adaptive techniques to improve the quality of an IR by: 3. The various ways of improving the online catalog for subject searching are reviewed. The paper then discusses the expert system approach to developing a subject search front-end.

It is suggested that an effective expert front-end can be developed by focusing on search strategies. A design for a rule-based expert system front-end is by: The early and well known engines such as WebCrawler, Lycos, Altavista, Excite, Infoseek, etc., are continually adding new features, improving automated indexing and permitting the use of retrieval techniques characteristic of traditional online services, such as the three basic Boolean operators, nesting with parentheses, phrase searching and proximity operators.

According to Adler () when subject headings and tags for twenty transgender books are examined, a vast difference in the language used is found thereby affecting information retrieval. To regain the online catalog's lofty status and win back its fair-weather fans, let's redesign an online library catalog that embraces: (1) post-Boolean probabilistic searching, to ensure the precision of searches in online library catalogs bearing the full texts of digitized books, journal articles, encyclopedias, conference papers, etc., (2.

This work aims at improving information retrieval in a health gateway by meta-modelling multiple terminologies related to medicine.

The meta-model is based. Any discussion of changes to the information retrieval system (including libraries' OPACs) must incorporate key aspects of information use.

Such aspects center around the work already being done regarding relevance (some of which is cited here). It must be recognized that relevance is based on cognition and, so, Cited by: 4.
