Example text

They were not tested. However, and to their credit, they were conceptual and terminological borrowings used for extending our collective insight about relevance. They made us think. Relevance: A Review of the Literature 21 We are still in search of a theory of relevance applicable to the context of information science and particularly IR. In other words, we are still in search of a conceptual basis, a set of testable principles and propositions, to explain the notion of relevance applicable to information science practice, to explain its manifestation, and to predict its behavior and effects.

Informing systems design’’ became a mantra not only for relevance studies, but also for all studies of human information behavior and information seeking in particular; it even concludes the introduction in this review. Seems logical. But it is not really happening. Why? The question was analyzed and lamented upon by a number of researchers and commentators about the state of affairs in information science. ’’ But the user side was not ‘‘telling’’ beyond the mantra. Unfortunately, ‘‘telling’’ is not that simple.

Similarly, this plurality was depicted by Schutz, from whom I took the term ‘‘system of relevances,’’ and by Sperber and Wilson, who talked about principles of relevance. In IR, relevance manifests itself in different strata. While often there may be differences in relevance inferences at different strata, these inferences are still interdependent. The whole point of IR evaluation, as practiced, is to compare relevance inferences from different levels. We can typify relevance as it manifests itself at different levels, and we can then study its behavior and effects within and between strata—as treated in relevant sections.
