Francisco-Revilla, Luis, Broussard, Ramona and Crow, Jeff (2012): New structures of video collections. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 475-477. Available online

With the growth of online TV, people increasingly expect services like recommending and sharing in digital video libraries. The amount and diversity of online video is increasing rapidly, changing how people engage with TV content. Thus, there is a need for models that account for the new online TV systems and the evolving expectations of users. This paper reports on the first iteration of a digital library model for online TV. The model was developed experimentally by analyzing collections, services and temporal behaviors of the most popular online TV sites.

Broussard, Ramona, Fazzio, Steven, Kang, Sophia Chia-Yu and Francisco-Revilla, Luis (2012): A computer activity to encourage facial expression recognition for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 478-479. Available online

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) do not recognize emotions in context as quickly as children without ASD. This research explores the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the area of social skills education. The project presents a computer activity that encourages children with ASD to match facial expressions with an emotion based on a story snippet. The activity provides context to children with ASD, facilitates discussion between the child and a teacher or parent, supports various input modes (touch on a mobile device and mouse on a laptop), and uses an imaginative approach to an emotion recognition game. This computer activity represents a step toward an activity that can encourage individuals with ASD to see and better analyze emotion in facial expressions.

Zhou, Yongyi, Broussard, Ramona and Lease, Matthew (2011): Mobile options for online public access catalogs. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 598-605. Available online

As mobile devices continue to proliferate and become more tightly integrated with our daily activities, a number of libraries have begun deploying customized mobile Web portals and applications to promote accessibility for patrons. Despite rapid growth of these mobile solutions, their novelty has meant relatively little is known about the alternatives and tradeoffs in designing for mobile access to libraries. To investigate these issues, we describe three complementary approaches. First, we report on a content analysis comparing mobile solutions offered by 22 institutions. Next, we present a user survey of university students, staff, and faculty regarding their uses and needs for mobile catalog access. Based on these findings, we describe a prototype mobile application we built to provide mobile access to our own university's library catalog. Overall, we find that libraries have several tiered options that make it simple to provide basic functionality with relatively little effort and deliver a significantly improved user experience in comparison to relying on traditional browser-based solutions.
