Faceted Browsing: The Convoluted Journey from Idea to Application

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article describes the development of a team’s research in engineering
applications of faceted classification and search over some 20 years, from
early experiments in novel information systems to routine use and development of a
growing body of knowledge about how the techniques may be applied. It is
intended as an illustration not only of an outcome from design research that has
influenced practice but also of some of the socio-technical patterns that may be
observed in the development and exploitation of research outputs, which is
important to understand if we are to best exploit the results of research.
