Abstract

This paper investigates the ways in which people group or categorize documents associated with a voluminous work to guide the construction of organized displays for information retrieval systems (IRSs). Fifty participants completed an unconstrained sorting task in which they were asked to sort intogroups 47 documents associated with the voluminous work A Christmas Carol,by Charles Dickens. Participants were asked to group documents based on how similar they were to each other and such that the groups would help them to remember how to find them at a later time. Data collected from the sorting task were summarized using cluster analysis, employed to discover commongroupings created by participants. Groupings discovered frequently shared physical format, language, and audience attributes. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
