Examination of the validity of the conclusions arrived at in the ASLIB Cranfield Research Project by Th. W. te Nuyl( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and Danish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cranfield Project was done in a laboratory sphere. In a practical situation, it is impossible to determine how many documents are relevant to a certain question. Although in the Cranfield Project collections of different sizes have been used, these collections do not fulfill the requirements that the small collections are randomly taken from the larger one. On the contrary, all the relevant documents in the small collection are the same as those in the large collection. The research work done does not give information to what extent the sampling method gives practical results. A more attractive method would be to accept figures obtained in the Cranfield Project for recall ratios at various coordination levels. In the Cranfield Project, coordination level of 3 means that out of 7-10 search terms all possible combinations are taken, but are counted only once independent of which terms match. This is inherent to the scan-column index technique used in the project, which is not easy to imitate in operational systems using computers, machine punched cards or manual punched cards.

Two Papers on Thesaurus Construction: The Language of Term Relation Designations in Subject Access Vocabularies the Specific-to-General See Reference in Thesaurus Construction by Richard S Angell( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first paper, "The Language of Term Relation Designations in Subject Access Vocabularies," contains a set of tables comparing certain features of ten thesauri and subject authority lists. The purpose of this essay is to present a kind of analysis that may have value in clarifying the language and structure of subject access vocabularies with a view to achieving maximum compatibility among them. The second paper, "The Specific-to-General See Reference in Thesaurus Construction" advances the proposition that the employment of the specific-to-general see reference is a faulty element in the structure of subject access vocabularies. The reference aknowledges the existence of a specific subject but denies the searcher direct access to material on that subject through a specific subject heading or index term. As a consequence, review of an undeterminable amount of non-relevant material is required in the retrieval process. The specific-to-general see reference should be vocabularies. See references should be limited to synonyms, antonyms, and alternative forms. (Mf)
