Grants and Other Projects:
Professor William E. Moen is completing the Final Report
for an evaluation of the Government Information Locator
Service (GILS). The study was contracted by the U.S. General
Services Administration with funding from several U.S.
government agencies: Department of Commerce, Department
of Defense, Environmental Protection Agency, General
Services Administration, National Archives and Records
Administration, and with active support from the Office of
Management and Budget. Moen along with Co-Principal
Investigator, Charles R. McClure, Distinguished Professor,
Syracuse University, has coordinated the project. Participat-
ing in the project at SLIS are students Erin Stewart (MS
program) and June Koelker (doctoral program).
Dr. Amanda Spink has submitted "Information Retrieval:
Dynamic User Interaction and Searching Over Time" to
National Science Foundation CAREER Grant Proposal,
1997-2000. The proposed study, in collaboration with
Microsoft, Inc. and the Department of Information Studies,
University of Sheffield, is a major investigation of the
relationship between information seeking and information
retrieval with implications for IR system design. Dr. Spink's
current research project is a joint venture with Excite, Inc.
(Web Browser). The project surveys searching behavior of
Excite users. The results of the survey will provide data on
users' general use of Excite and their specific use of Excite to
find information on their current topic. Findings will be used
for the design and development of Excite, and the development
of theoretical models of interactive searching behavior.
Professor William E. Moen, in collaboration with Dr.
Samantha Hastings, conducted a day-long preconference,
"Keeping the Electronic Gate: Evaluating Internet Resources
for Public Libraries," at the April 1997 Texas Library
