FaceTag: Integrating Bottom-up and Top-down Classification in a Social Tagging System
by Emanuele Quintarelli, Andrea Resmini, Luca Rosati (9/30/2006)
Subject: Faceted Classification, Information Retrieval, Social Context
Abstract: FaceTag is a working prototype of a semantic collaborative tagging tool conceived for bookmarking information architecture resources. It aims to show how the flat keywords space of user-generated tags can be effectively mixed with a richer faceted classification scheme to improve the system information architecture. Facets constitute an adaptive classification system capable to represent both a knowledge in movement (like that of collaborative environments) and several mental models at the same time. The blend of tags and facets is able to empower the information scent and berrypicking capabilities of the system.
by Stuart K. Card, Peter Pirolli (1999)
Subject: Classics, Information Retrieval, Information Seeking Behavior
Abstract: Information Foraging Theory is an approach to understanding how strategies and technologies for information seeking, gathering, and consumption are adapted to the flux of information in the environment. The theory assumes that people, when possible, will modify their strategies or the structure of the environment to maximize their rate of gaining valuable information.
Scatter/gather: A cluster-based approach to browsing large document
by D.R. Cutting, David R. Karger, J.O. Pederson, J.W. Tukey
Subject: Classics, Information Retrieval
Abstract: Clustering as a tool for organizing large document collections. Quantitative measures for similarity between documents.
Searching versus Finding
by W.A. Woods (4/5/2004)
Subject: Information Retrieval, Organization, Searching
Abstract: Finding information and organizing information so that it can be found are two key aspects of any knowledge management strategy.
The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine
by Sergey Brin, Lawrence Page (1998)
Subject: Information Retrieval
Abstract: This paper presents Google, a prototype of a large-scale search engine, which makes heavy use of the structure present in hypertext. Google is designed to crawl and index the web efficiently and produce much more satisfying search results than existing systems.
The Design of Browsing and Berrypicking Techniques for the Online Search Interface
by Marcia Bates (1989)
Subject: Information Retrieval
Abstract: The author argues for a new model of information retrieval called "berrypicking." This model attempts to be much more representative of the real behavior of information searchers than the traditional model of information retrieval.
by Tim Craven (1998)
Subject: Information Retrieval, Thesaurus Design
Abstract: A tutorial on the basics of constructing an information retrieval thesaurus. It includes a glossary of thesaurus terms.
Unraveling the Mysteries of Metadata and Taxonomies
by Samantha Bailey, Christina Wodtke (4/2002)
Subject: Classification, Information Retrieval
Abstract: Samantha Bailey, formerly at Argus and current lead IA for Wachovia Corporation's Wachovia.com website, talks about the transition from being a consultant to an "innie" IA, unravels the mysteries of metadata and taxonomies and shares her vision of the future of IA.
Web Page Design: Implications of Memory, Structure and Scent for Information Retrieval
by Mary Czerwinski, Kevin Larson (1998)
Subject: Information Retrieval
Abstract: The authors describe an experiment to see if large breadth and decreased depth is preferable, both subjectively and via performance data, while attempting to design for optimal scent throughout different structures of a web site. This work is testing the theories of Miller in his classic "The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two."

Dynamic Taxonomies: A Model for Large Information Bases
by Giovanni M. Sacco (6/2000)
Subject: Faceted Classification, Information Retrieval, Knowledge Management
Abstract: A new taxonomic model for structuring and accessing large heterogeneous information bases is presented. The model is designed to simplify both classification and access by computer-illiterate people. It defines simple and intuitive operations to access large information bases at the conceptual level and at different levels of abstraction, in a totally assisted way, through a simple, yet effective visual interface. The model can also be used to summarize result sets computed by other query methods, such as information retrieval, shape retrieval, etc., and to provide user maps for complex hypermedia networks. The experience gained by applying this model to commercial applications is reported. architecture).
Information Seeking in Electronic Environments
by Gary Marchionini (1997)
Subject: Information Retrieval, Information Seeking Behavior, Interface Design
Abstract: Discusses both searching and browsing interfaces to aid users in their information seeking. Includes research on information-seeking efforts and strategies, describes browsing strategies and systems that support them, as well as trends and strategies for the future.

by John Farrow, Jennifer Rowley (2000)
Subject: Information Organization, Information Retrieval, Searching
