    Folksonomy as an information architecture for exploratory search Folksonomy as an information architecture for exploratory search Presentation Transcript

    • Understanding folksonomy as an information architecture for exploratory search Tingting Jiang & Dr. Sherry Koshman School of Information Sciences University of Pittsburgh
    • Outline
      • Exploratory search and social tagging systems
      • Information architectures in exploratory search systems
      • Information seeking modes in social tagging systems
      IA Summit 2008 Jiang, T. & Koshman, S. – folksonomy, IA, exploratory search 01
      • Motivation – uncertainties
        • Information need
        • Information space
      Exploratory search IA Summit 2008 Jiang, T. & Koshman, S. – folksonomy, IA, exploratory search 02
      • Activities
        • Searching – cognitive
        • Browsing – perceptual
      • Motivation – Uncertainties
        • Interests in finding out
          • What is available?
          • What is the trend?
        • Lacking awareness of
          • Flat and inclusive structure - folksonomy
      Social tagging systems IA Summit 2008 Jiang, T. & Koshman, S. – folksonomy, IA, exploratory search 03 Information seeking in social tagging systems is largely exploratory
      • Hierarchical classification
      • Faceted Categorization
      • Dynamic clusters
