Abstract

This paper reports on the results of a study that aims to support end users of a multimedia system that manages a digital cultural heritage collection. The system is provided with automatic tools that simulate the behavior of the research method adopted by professional users when they interact with the multimedia application. The experimental results have been obtained using a multimedia application that manages the digital representation of historical botanical manuscripts.
