Understanding collections : description and access by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Collections provide a challenge because they can be characterized both as a single entity and as a grouping of other entities which may themselves be of interest. The demands of this dual nature are discussed in the context of CORC pathfinders and special and archival collections. A current Office of Research project studying how these collections come to be and how libraries and other institutions are approaching description and access is briefly described
Office of Research looks into information visualization by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Information visualization has become increasingly important over the past decade. As more electronic information becomes available, in a wider variety of formats (text, structured data, maps and other still images, video, etc.), and to a wider range of users, techniques for visualizing information promise to provide easier and more intuitive means for displaying, identifying, interpreting, understanding and manipulating information

Studying special collections and the Web : an analysis of practice by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Many digital library collections are the virtual analogs of special collections in libraries, museums, historical societies and archives today. A field study of people responsible for collection maintenance across a variety of institutions was carried out. It aimed at improving our understanding of issues involved in collection description and access. A second study examined the current state of Web access to materials from the previously studied special collections. Data concerning the availability of online finding aids, externally accessible databases for collection content, digitized images and Web exhibits are presented

Reference in Context Project by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Reference in Context team at OCLC has been trying to get a better understanding of how people look for information in a library setting. We are using a "user-centered" design method called Contextual Design to focus our information gathering and data analysis. The study provides many ideas about ways to enhance reference access and will improve our ability to design future end user oriented retrieval systems
Wordview : understanding words in context by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using visualization to understand phrase structure by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From a concern with helping users deal with information overload, we are developing suitable visual metaphors for representing the dispersion of information and developing tools for supporting the ability of users to interact with these metaphorical displays and to navigate the information landscapes that they represent. WordView, our initial application within the OverView project, was designed to be an easy-to-use tool to study naturally occurring phrases and to support the future design of intelligent text input systems. It embodies an easy to understand graphic summary and a user-controllable inspection facility
CORC interface designed for experience catalogers as well as other users by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The article describes the OCLC Office of Research's work with designing a CORC user interface

Pathfinders : a collaborative reference tool by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reference in Context explores the reference processes by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Over the past year, the Reference In Context team at OCLC has been working on a project to provide a better understanding of how people look for information in a library setting. This understanding will improve our ability to design systems that "go the next step" in meeting the needs of library users
Using a classification-based information space by Lorraine Normore( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currently, visualization is being used to aid understanding of text-based information searches by members of both the information retrieval (IR) and the human-computer interaction (HCI) communities. The dominant visualization model, its origins and issues raised by its use, are explored in this paper. An alternate model based on a systematic classification system is proposed and an application based on this model is described
Reference in Context by OCLC( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reference in Context goals are to better understand the communication flow and the context in which reference librarians and library users approach electronic and print information resources and to document this environment. This understanding is then applied when creating future information systems so that the systems better fit the needs and behaviors of users. This page describes methodology used in the project and links to viewing RIC data and an RIC article from the OCLC newsletter
