Information Retrieval and Cognitive Engineering

Jens Rasmussen

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch


    The topics in focus of the SIGIR conference originate in the problem of collecting, storing, and retrieving information. Two different approaches have been taken to this problem with two different research traditions based on different paradigms. One is found within information and library sciences,another within cognitive engineering. Due to the present trend toward'integrated work stations,' however, time has now come to consider the benefit to be expected by merging the paradigms, research efforts, and the results already available.In the present contribution, an attempt is made to illustrate the cognitive engineering approach to analysis of work systems and design of work stations and to demonstrate the need for a closer interaction with the information and library sciences.
