M. Agosti, and P.G. Marchetti. User navigation in the IRS conceptual structure through a semantic association function. In: The Computer Journal, Nr: 3, Vol: 35, Pages: 194-199, 1992.

This paper addresses the methodological aspects of designing a semantic association function in a hypertext information retrieval environment and model. Through this function a part of an associative information retrieval model is designed and implemented. Initially the paper provides reference to previous efforts in associative information retrieval and automatic search formulation and re-formulation operations. The semantic association function is a function which belongs to a new functional hypertext information retrieval model that has been previously justifies and presented. For this reason, the meaning of aim of the semantic association function are also recalled and reported. The central part of the paper presents motivations and justification for the design and implementation of the semantic association function in an experimental hypertext information retrieval interface as opposed to a traditional online information retrieval system.

This paper presents a design and implementation project based on a two-level conceptual architecture for the construction of a hypertext environment for interacting with large textual databases. The conceptual architecture has been proposed to be used for a semantic representation of the informative content of a collection of documents and for the organisation of the document collection itself. The hypertext environment is based on a set of functions that permits one to exploit the potential capabilities of the two-level architecture. Those functions are presented in detail. The paper reports some results of a more general project whose final goal is the definition of a new model for information retrieval: a model with information retrieval capabilities embedded within a hypertext environment. Finally, an outline is presented of the characteristics of a prototype, named HYPERLINE, of the hypertext environment. This prototype has been developed by the Information Retrieval Service of the European Space Agency (ESA-IRS).

M. Agosti, and M. Masotti. Design of an OPAC Database to Permit Different Subject Searching Accesses in a Multi-Disciplines Universities Library Catalogue Database. In: Proceedings of the 15th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Edited by: N.J. Belkin, P. Ingwersen, and A.M Pejtersen. Pages: 245-255, June, 1992.

This paper presents searching approaches and user interface capabilities of DUO, an Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) designed to permit the users of three Universities of the North- East of Italy different subject searching accesses to the co-operative multi-disciplines library catalogue database.

The co-operative catalogue database is managed by one of the software systems developed under the Italian National Project for library automation: the SBN project. Since the SBN database has not been designed to be efficiently accessed for end-user searches, the DUO database has been designed to avoid duplication of the SBN database data and to be usable for making efficient subjects accesses to the catalogue documents. The DUO design choices are presented, in particular the main choice of designing a "virtual" document that corresponds to each SBN document and that has unstructured data usable for subject search purposes.

The paper presents a new kind of user-OPAC dialogue that makes available to the user different search approaches and on-line dictionaries. In particular the user during the interaction with the search tool can represent his information needs with the support of interface capabilities that are based on retrieval path history, and words and codes on-line dictionaries.

DUO is the first Italian OPAC that has been made openly available to users of universities and research institutions. For this reason, it is also the first time that OPAC log data is going to be collected in Italy. This work mainly intends to make a modern OPAC available to the users of a SBN catalogue database, but it is going to permit also to build up a knowledge on OPAC usage in Italy.
