An interaction and interface design framework for video digital libraries

An interaction and interface design framework for video digital libraries Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a framework applicable to interactive video retrieval. The objective of the framework is so that it can be applied conceptually for understanding users and use of video digital libraries, and also practically for designing retrieval components like user interfaces. Design/methodology/approach – The framework was developed through a user‐centered and analytical approach, and serves as an initial attempt at generalizing how users interact when searching and browsing digital video, throughout different situations, along with the general designs that can be supportive. Findings – The framework is two‐fold, yet, together, comprises one set of conceptual findings. The first component of the framework depicts generalized user interactions throughout varying contexts of an interactive video retrieval process, followed by a second component, an illustration of the resulting supportive interface designs or sets of features. Cautions from previous studies not to over generalize the interactive process were heeded. Research limitations/implications – The implications for such research are based on the understanding that video retrieval will benefit from the advancement of user‐centered foundations, which can guide and support design decisions for resources like digital libraries. Originality/value – The need for this study is rather straightforward: there is currently not enough conceptual research of interactive video retrieval from a user‐centered perspective, which contrasts with other areas of information retrieval research where the interaction process has been thoroughly examined for a variety of domains and contexts with implications for different retrieval tools like OPACs, search engines, and article databases. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Documentation Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a framework applicable to interactive video retrieval. The objective of the framework is so that it can be applied conceptually for understanding users and use of video digital libraries, and also practically for designing retrieval components like user interfaces. Design/methodology/approach – The framework was developed through a user‐centered and analytical approach, and serves as an initial attempt at generalizing how users interact when searching and browsing digital video, throughout different situations, along with the general designs that can be supportive. Findings – The framework is two‐fold, yet, together, comprises one set of conceptual findings. The first component of the framework depicts generalized user interactions throughout varying contexts of an interactive video retrieval process, followed by a second component, an illustration of the resulting supportive interface designs or sets of features. Cautions from previous studies not to over generalize the interactive process were heeded. Research limitations/implications – The implications for such research are based on the understanding that video retrieval will benefit from the advancement of user‐centered foundations, which can guide and support design decisions for resources like digital libraries. Originality/value – The need for this study is rather straightforward: there is currently not enough conceptual research of interactive video retrieval from a user‐centered perspective, which contrasts with other areas of information retrieval research where the interaction process has been thoroughly examined for a variety of domains and contexts with implications for different retrieval tools like OPACs, search engines, and article databases.
