Viles, Charles L.; French, James C.
Information Processing & Management, v35 n3 p317-36 1999
Introduces content locality--the degree to which content-similar documents are colocated in a distributed collection--in distributed digital libraries. Proposes two metrics for measurement of content locality, one based on topic signatures and the other based on collection statistics. Provides derivations and analysis of both metrics and uses them to measure the locality in two kinds of document collections. (Author/AEF)
