Information Management & Systems
Previously School of Library & Information Studies
Seminar: Information Access. Fall 2000.
3 units. CCN# 42733. Fridays 3-5. 107 South Hall.
Clifford Lynch and
(510) 642 3159.
The seminar explores selected advanced topics relating to "digital
libraries" with special emphasis on:
- Access to networked resources
- Use of two or more resources in conjunction
- Combined use of two or more retrieval systems (e.g. use of pre- or
post-processing to enhance the capabilities)
- The redesign of library services.
Also it is expected that these issues will require attention to a number
of questions about the nature of information
retrieval processes, the feasibility of not-yet-conventional techniques,
techniques of making different systems
work together, social impact, and the reconsideration of past practices.
More generally, the seminar is intended to provide a
forum for advanced students in the School. Anyone interested in these
topics is welcome to join in -- and to talk
about their own work.
Prerequisite for course credit: Consent of instructor for non-SIMS students.
