"'Andreas Rauber'? Conference Pages Are over There, German Documents on the Lower Left, .." - An "Old-Fashioned" Approach to Web
With the massive advance of electronic document repositories, usable interfaces to these repositories gain importance. While sophisticated information retrieval techniques provide acceptable result selection, interaction with a repository as such and with the documents retrieved leaves a lot to be desired, as users commonly are restricted to reading through one-dimensionally sorted lists of document descriptions. In this paper we present the combination of a topical organization of documents via the SOMLib system with the intuitive representation of document metadata provided by the libViewer visualization. It allows users to approach query results in a way comparable to how conventional libraries are being used. We demonstrate the benefits of this system by using it as a front-end to the AltaVista search engine.
