Subjective versus Objective Relevance in Bibliographic Retrieval Systems
ARTICLE

Library Quarterly Volume 56, Number 4,

Abstract

The objective relevance of a document to a request is crucial to the design and testing of bibliographic retrieval systems, while subjective relevance is paramount in the use of such systems. The distinction provides a rationale for a trial-and-error mode of interaction with information systems. (Author/EM)
