Project description
The goal of this proposal is to understand, and to develop methods and tools for improving information interactions of the end users accessing digital cultural heritage collections. The research is based on the task-based (TBII) paradigm. Methods and tools are developed for the end users based on studying the use of digital humanities collections in real and simulated work tasks. We focus on understanding interactions, workflows and search patterns in information intensive tasks, and developing conceptual support for searching and exploration.
