Can Visualizing Document Space Improve Users' Information Foraging?
Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v35 p118-41 1998
This study shows how users access relevant information in a visualized document space and determine whether BiblioMapper, a visualization tool, strengthens an information retrieval (IR) system and makes it more usable. BiblioMapper, developed for a CISI collection, was evaluated by accuracy, time, and user satisfaction. Users' navigation strategies were analyzed. (Author/AEF)
