GAONA GARCIA, P. A; SANCHEZ-ALONSO, S  and  MONTENEGRO MARIN, C. E. Visualization of information: a proposal to improve the search and access to digital resources in repositories. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.1, pp.83-89. ISSN 0120-5609.

ABSTRACT Presently, the most notable challenges associated with repositories in resolving problems of searches of digital resources, lie in providing an understanding of resource classification according to a knowledge representation scheme and the relationship between them. However, one of the areas with very little research in the field is the study of visual search interfaces that provide access to relevant materials in digital repositories; more specifically, in the access of digital resources according to areas and sub-areas of a particular knowledge domain through a taxonomy classification. In this article, we focus in proposing a best practice for the search and access to relevant digital resources in repositories through visualization techniques. The article presents a prototype tool as one possible approach to facilitate searches and access to digital resources. Finally, we present the conclusions and future work in the field in order to improve access to relevant materials in digital repositories.

Keywords : Visualization techniques; data visualization; user interfaces; repositories; digital resources.
