The Functional Ontology of Filmic Documents
This book chapter discusses the functional ontology of filmic documents. The authors examine a few phases of probing of filmic documents, and the relationship between structure and meaning. The authors have taken the liberty of sketching the earlier phases and of presenting the most recent in somewhat more detail. Considerations of the early phases, among other issues of document use, led to the functional ontology construction as a foundation for this probing and for wider concerns within the arena of messages, meanings, and uses. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc83796/

Hunting and Gathering on the Information Savanna
In this book, the authors offer three different arenas of nontrivial information seeking for our consideration: "Submarine Chasing" explores the thoughts of a highly decorated Cold War submarine hunter. "Bounty Hunting" involves a long and convoluted search for a reported bond skipper. "Engineering Design" presents a content analysis of the few works in epistemological foundations of engineering design activity. These stories, told at great length and in considerable detail, are framed within a foundational model that links the simple act of document seeking to the broader issue of making one's way through life in the physical world. In each case, the authors ramble, mull, and stumble upon ideas without the least prior constraint, developing some threads quite fully and leaving others to tease us, but never ever throwing us to the lions. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc83323/

Leadership in Career and Technical Education: Beginning the 21st Century
Leadership in Career and Technical Education: Beginning the 21st Century is the third edited book published by the University Council of Workforce and Human Resource Education (UCWHRE), formerly the University Council of Vocational Education (UCVE).

Resource Discovery Using Z39.50: Promise and Reality
This paper discusses the Z39.50 protocol. The ANSI/NISO Z39.50 protocol for information retrieval addresses the complex challenges of intersystem communication. Original uses envisioned for the protocol look very little like current implementations and uses. In the 1980s, users on one library catalog system would search and retrieve bibliographic records on a remote system. By the late 1990s, there was a need for discovering networked resources and integrating access to them. Yet, the Z39.50 protocol has addressed both these scenarios. This paper provides a portrayal of Z39.50 that explains its flexibility in response to a variety of information retrieval requirements in the networked environment. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc36297/

CIMI's Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed: Search and Retrieval of Distributed Cultural Heritage Information
This paper discusses the Consortium for the Computer Interchange of Museum Information (CIMI)'s international effort to provide distributed search and retrieval of cultural heritage information. A primary aspect of CIMI's work utilizes ANSI/NISO Z39.50-1995, and American National Standard protocol for information retrieval. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently approved Z39.50 as ISO 23950. CIMI chose Z39.50 to enable uniform access to existing and emerging digital collections and the vast repositories of cultural heritage information resources. These resources include a variety of physical and digital objects--physical artifacts and digital derivatives of those artifacts, descriptive records designed for collection management, bibliographic records, full-text documents, online tools such as thesauri and authoritative lists of artists' names, and more. CIMI's application Z39.50 in the networked cultural heritage information environment is breaking new ground in distributed and integrated access to textual and non-textual digital collections. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc36295/

Z39.50 Interoperability Testing Framework for Online Library Catalogs Using Radioactive MARC Records
This document discusses a Z39.50 Interoperability Testing framework. In a first phase of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed, a large dataset of MARC records was used. In this work, the authors are exploring how a set of special, diagnostic MARC records can be developed and used to identify interoperability problems between a Z39.50 client and a Z39.50 server providing access to a database of bibliographic records supporting the search and retrieval functions of an online library catalog. The authors refer to these special, diagnostic records as radioactive MARC records. It discusses the various components and identifies the tasks related to developing and implementing the components. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc111002/
UNT 2005 TREC QA Participation: Using Lemur as IR Search Engine
This paper reports the authors' TREC 2005 QA participation. The authors' QA system Eagle QA developed last year was expanded and modified for this year's QA experiments. Particularly, the authors used Lemur 4.1 as the Information Retrieval (IR) Engine this year to find documents that may contain answers for the test questions from the document collection. The authors' result shows Lemur did a reasonable job on finding relevant documents. But certainly there is room for further improvement. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc96841/
Access to Film and Video Works: Surrogates for Moving Image Documents
This doctoral dissertation discusses access to film and video works. Physical and intellectual access to moving image documents is insufficient, often insignificant, at the level of the individual user. Existing access tools suffer from a lack of recognition of the differences between linguistic text communication and image communication. Browsing and relevance judgements are made difficult by the physical realities of film and video documents - one cannot flip through them - and by the habits of serial and passive viewing. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc77222/
