Title
¬The newspaper as an information exploration metaphor
Source
Information processing and management. 33(1997) no.5, S.663-683
Year
1997
Abstract
Examines the implementation of the newspaper metaphor in an information exploration interface. The newspaper metaphor is an appropriate interface papradigm for large-scale full-text databases. This metaphor is appropriate for large automatically generated hypertexts, independent of the nature of their content. Describes VOIR, a softwre prototype that is used as an electronic newspaper workbench. The program constructs newspaper pages interactively, and allows user to specify their information seeking intent in a variety of ways, including graphical Boolean queries, hypertext links, and typed-in queries. Reports some empirical evidence that indicates that users perform better when they are shown more articles simultaneously. These results suggest that the newspaper metaphor may be an effective organizing principle for a class of information exploration tasks. Discusses some implications for hypertext and information retrieval in general
