Term Co-occurrence Analysis as an Interface for Digital Libraries
- 766 Downloads
We examine the relationship between term co-occurrence analysis and a user interface for digital libraries. We describe a current working implementation of a dynamic visual information retrieval system based on co-cited author maps that assists in browsing and retrieving records from a large-scale database, ten years of the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, in real time. Any figure in the arts or humanities, including scholars and critics, can be mapped, and the maps are live interfaces for retrieving co-citing documents.
