Quality Health Information on the Internet: Developing a Diabetes Pathfinder for the Chinese Population

Quality Health Information on the Internet: Developing a Diabetes Pathfinder for the Chinese Population

Date: October 1, 2009
Creator: Cleveland, Ana D.; Philbrick, Jodi; Pan, Xuequn (Della); Yu, Xinyu; Chen, Jiangping; O'Neill, Marty et al.
Description: Article discussing quality health information on the Internet. Abstract: A Web-based bilingual diabetes information pathfinder was created to help the Chinese population access quality health information on the Internet as part of a collaborative outreach project in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. A survey was conducted to identify the demographics, Internet usage, health information needs, and preferences for training sessions of the Chinese population. Breast cancer, diabetes, and hepatitis B were the top three diseases of interest. The process of developing the pathfinder is described from start to finish, and it can serve as a model for the development of others. Pathfinder training sessions also were held.

Cross-language search: The case of Google Language Tools

Cross-language search: The case of Google Language Tools

Date: March 2, 2009
Creator: Chen, Jiangping & Bao, Yu
Description: This article discusses cross-language search. Abstract: This paper presents a case study of Google Language Tools, especially its cross-language search service. Cross-language search integrates machine translation (MT) and cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) technologies and allows Web users to search and read pages written in languages different from their search terms. In addition to cross-language search, Google Language Tools provides various language support services to multilingual information access. Our study examines the functions of Google Language Tools and the performance of its cross-language search. The results and analysis show that Google Language Tools are useful for Web users. Its cross-language search service provides quality query translation while the automatic translation of result pages needs further improvement. The paper suggests that cross-language search could be used by different types of Web users. The authors also discuss the strategies and important issues with regard to implementing multilingual information access services for information systems.

Resource and Resource Sharing in Intelligent Information Access

Resource and Resource Sharing in Intelligent Information Access

Date: October 23, 2008
Creator: Chen, Jiangping
Description: This presentation discusses an exploratory study on resources and resource sharing among researchers in Intelligent Information Access (IIA). The investigation consists of two stages. In Stage One, the authors conducted a content analysis to identify resources used in 145 research papers and reports in two subfields of IIA; and in Stage Two, the authors carried out an online survey of IIA researchers to understand resource-sharing channels and the researchers' perspectives on resource sharing.

Resource and Resource Sharing in Intelligent Information Access

Date: October 2008
Creator: Chen, Jiangping & Li, Fei
Description: This paper reports an exploratory study on resources and resource sharing among researchers in Intelligent Information Access (IIA). The investigation consists of two stages. In Stage One, the authors conducted a content analysis to identify resources used in 145 research papers and reports in two subfields of IIA; and in Stage Two, the authors carried out an online survey of IIA researchers to understand resource-sharing channels and the researchers' perspectives on resource sharing. The results demonstrate that IIA researchers make use of various types of resources developed by others. Most of these resources are knowledgeable sources or software systems that are freely available online. However, IIA researchers encounter various difficulties during the course of resource acquisition and use. The study suggests that a resource management system built on a well-established knowledge-management model could greatly facilitate the creation, sharing, and use of resources in the IIA community.
