1LaBarre, K.A. ; Tilley, C.L.: ¬The elusive tale : leveraging the study of information seeking and knowledge organization to improve access to and discovery of folktales.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 63(2012) no.4, S.687-701.
Abstract: The "Folktales and Facets" project proposes ways to enhance access to folktales-in written and audiovisual formats-through the systematic and rigorous development of user-focused and task-focused models of information representation. Methods used include cognitive task analysis and facet analysis to better understand the information-seeking and information-use practices of people working with folktales and the intellectual dimensions of the domain. Interviews were conducted with 9 informants, representing scholars, storytellers, and teachers who rely on folktales in their professional lives to determine common tasks across user groups. Four tasks were identified: collect, create, instruct, and study. Facet analysis was conducted on the transcripts of these interviews, and a representative set of literature that included subject indexing material and a random stratified set of document surrogates drawn from a collection of folktales, including bibliographic records, introductions, reviews, tables of contents, and bibliographies. Eight facets were identified as most salient for this group of users: agent, association, context, documentation, location, subject, time, and viewpoint. Implications include the need for systems designers to devise methods for harvesting and integrating extant contextual material into search and discovery systems, and to take into account user-desired features in the development of enhanced services for digital repositories.

Abstract: Kuhlthau (2005) highlighted the chasm separating the investigation of information-seeking behaviors and the design of information retrieval systems and proposed that its continued existence prohibited any effective resolution of information seeking problems. Consequently she argued that only by enhancing collaboration among researchers engaged in these two areas, continuing investigations beyond the first round of findings, and using findings to design systems for evaluation can research in library and information science proceed meaningfully and effectively. This paper will discuss the task analysis findings from the research project Folktales and Facets that seeks to address this chasm. As part of the content analytical approach taken in this project, the researchers conducted task analysis on transcripts from interviews with 12 subjects who rely on folk narratives in their professional lives as storytellers (n=6) scholars or instructors (n=4), or librarians (n=2). These findings will be mapped to the FRBR user tasks and placed in the greater context of user-focused studies that seek to do the same.

Abstract: This paper provides an introduction to an ongoing research project that aims to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency with which users discover and access folktales. Through systematic and rigorous research combining task analysis with facet analysis, the researchers intend to develop an enhanced bibliographic record prototype. The focus of the paper, however, is to discuss results from the preliminary phase of this project. In particular it will describe the information tasks, information seeking obstacles, and desired features for a discovery and access tool related to folktales for a group of scholarly users of folktales. Additionally the paper will address some of the bibliographic, cultural, and intellectual facets derived from a sample of folktale resources. Finally it proposes a provisional model for enhanced bibliographic records, comparing it with the one implicit in extant bibliographic discovery and access tools.
