Project Update: Providing Context for Learners
The difference between seeing and understanding is in knowing the context. Two closely related projects are developing better ways to provide context. We will provide a progress report and demonstrate an early version of a context-finding / context-building interface being developed. The approach being adopted can provide a basis for making the reference library a reality in the digital library environment.
The two projects are:
- "Bringing Lives to Light: Biography in Context"
- "Context and Relationships: Ireland and Irish Studies"
Both build on the earlier project "Support for the Learner: What, Where, When, and Who".
