Access methods for non-textual documents

M D Dunlop and C J van Rijsbergen

This paper discusses aspects of multi-medium document bases and how access to documents held on a computer based system can be achieved. It discusses current access methods for multi-medium document bases and in particular hypermedia and probabilistic retrieval systems. It then goes on to propose a hybrid between these two traditional fields of information retrieval in an attempt to improves access to information held on document bases and in particular non-textual information. A user interface is also proposed which would take advantage of the hybrid model.
