  • 16. Example “DVT” 1.! Query term “DVT” 2.! “Venous Thrombosis” most frequent heading from PubMed articles 3.! SmartSearch Map: No “Venous Thrombosis” resources 4.! Climbs MeSH tree to find “Vascular Diseases”" 3 resources Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center A DIVISION OF IRT

  • 21. Hypothesis That resources recommended by the SmartSearch system would be used more heavily than peer metasearch resources not included in the project. Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center A DIVISION OF IRT
  • 22. Methods •! Website clicks to metasearch resources (WebTrends) •! Before & after rollout to SmartSearch (3 mos. of data each) •! Linear regression of change (slopes) of peer resources vs. SmartSearch resources Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center A DIVISION OF IRT
  • 23. Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center
  • 24. Results •! No significant difference between change in views of peer resources & SmartSearch resources •! Slope = 0.3882 ± 0.3296 •! R2 = 0.008927 •! P = 0.2407 (deviates from slope = 0) Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center A DIVISION OF IRT
  • 25. Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center
  • 26. Next Steps •! Relocate to clinical search interface •! Refine the resource & subject maps •! Recommend people: librarians? •! Refine the algorithm •! Other uses? Richard Zwies - Web Production Specialist, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center A DIVISION OF IRT
