Weblogindexes : A study of weblogindexes from the perspective of Lancasters processual model of traditional indexing. (English)
Abstract [en]

Many new electronic publication systems have arisen in the past few years, one of them is the weblog. In 1999 there were 23 weblogs, today there are millions thus a need for organisation has appeared, both special metadata and subject indexes have been invented and created. Due to the large amount of the latter we have in this thesis decided to concentrate on those close by the Scandinavian weblogindexes. A more international perspective would however have been possible, as very little is written on the topic. We have looked at these selected weblogindexes, trying to determinate whether they agree with F. W. Lancaster's suggestion of the index's role in an IR-system or not. We have studied how weblogs may be organized in a weblogindex, and if catalogisation is necessary or at all needed for doing this. F. W. Lancaster's indexing model can be described as: selection, description and retrieval. These three points are then applied to a weblogindex, and discussed. We found during our studies of different weblogindexes that Lancaster's model is indeed applicable to such, however with a slight twist. And that metadata in the bigger picture is redundant and seems irrelevant to most weblogauthors and weblogindexes. We also discovered that RSS RDF Site Summary is an ever growing method of keeping up to date with weblogs, and for that matter, other webservices too.
