Title
Simulation of the reference process : Part 2: REFSIM, an implementation with expert and ICAI modes
Source
Reference librarian. 1989, no.23, S.153-176
Year
1989
Abstract
Exploring the advantages of a simulation (rather than expert systems) approach to designing a system to relieve reference desk overload. REFSIM can simulate a reference librarian, a teacher of reference librarians and a client, singly or in combination. It has an expert system consultation mode and several Intelligent Computer-Assisted Instruction (ICAI) modes. The components and architecture of REFSIM are described. Details, including a sample transaction, are given for the expert system mode, wich is to be used for consultation by library clients. An overview is supplied for 2 ICAI modes, wich can be used to instruct clients or train reference librarians.
