Day 14 Notes: Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2006
1. One-minute papers from last week
Info seeking behaviors are dependent on person, domain, task
Dervin seems sensible/easy
We study ISB to improve search systems [more than this]
Where do push technologies fit on the search-browse continuum?
Is less time the best measure of good search? [NO! only for some kinds of searching]
Differences in analytical and browse searching? [see slides]
Must we deliver customized systems to each person?
3. Asking Questions Assignment debriefing
4. Readings and the blog post questions (is every document psychologically relevant?)
Why this is important? (the ILS masses are asking ;-)
Theoretical import: Relevance---objectivist to subjectivist continuum
Practical import: Relevance---basis for evaluation of info services
Debate: professional indexing vs social tagging by anybody
5. One-minute paper concept
What was the big point you learned in class today?
What is the main, unanswered question you leave class with today?
