Blended Library - Bibliothek der Zukunft

Beschreibung

Caused by the proceeding digitalization, real services of many domains were projected onto digital ones. Thus, a lot of social and physical values of real environments (e. g. face-to-face contact, spatial orientation, tangible media objects) got lost due to the duality of real and virtual services. This project proposes a paradigm shift, away from building separated virtual worlds to embedding information technology into the social and physical world of a library.

One approach to apply this paradigm shift will be introduced as the concept of the Blended Library, which makes use of the physical and social skills of a user within the library of the future. The theoretical foundation of this work is provided by embodiment theory, which is increasingly becoming relevant when designing integrated work environments. This theory reveals requirements for digital systems, which can only be met by a new generation of user interfaces. Therefore, Conceptual Blending is proposed as tool for creating these new user interfaces.

Blended Library : neue Zugangswege zu den Inhalten wissenschaftlicher und öffentlicher Bibliotheken Reiterer, Harald; Rädle, Roman; Butscher, Simon; Müller, Jens Der Beitrag stellt neue Formen des Zugangs zu den Inhalten von Bibliotheken vor. Diese wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit wissenschaftlichen und öffentlichen Bibliotheken im Rahmen zweier Forschungsinitiativen entwickelt. Zu Beginn jeder Forschungsinitiative wurden eine Reihe empirischer Studien durchgeführt, die wertvolle Erkenntnisse über die Nutzung von Bibliotheken lieferten. Diese Erkenntnisse wurden in die vier Qualitäten intuitiver, kollaborativer, transparenter und kontextueller Zugang überführt. Diese waren Ausgangspunkt für die Entwicklung mehrerer interaktiver Forschungssysteme. Die Herleitung aller vier Qualitäten der Zugänglichkeit werden erläutert und deren Umsetzung in den Forschungssystemen „Blended Shelf“, „TwisterSearch“, „Tiefenrausch“ und „Expedition“ beschrieben. Abschließend werden die mithilfe von Forschungssystemen gewonnenen Erkenntnisse und Erfahrungen unter Betrachtung der vier Qualitäten der Zugänglichkeit diskutiert.

Spatially-aware or spatially-agnostic? : Elicitation and Evaluation of User-Defined Cross-Device Interactions Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Schreiner, Mario; Lu, Zhihao; Reiterer, Harald; Rogers, Yvonne Cross-device interaction between multiple mobile devices is a popular field of research in HCI. However, the appropriate design of this interaction is still an open question, with competing approaches such as spatially-aware vs. spatially-agnostic techniques. In this paper, we present the results of a two-phase user study that explores this design space: In phase 1, we elicited gestures for typical mobile cross-device tasks from 4 focus groups (N=17). The results show that 71% of the elicited gestures were spatially-aware and that participants strongly associated cross-device tasks with interacting and thinking in space. In phase 2, we implemented one spatially-agnostic and two spatially-aware techniques from phase 1 and compared them in a controlled experiment (N=12). The results indicate that spatially-aware techniques are preferred by users and can decrease mental demand, effort, and frustration, but only when they are designed with great care. We conclude with a summary of findings to inform the design of future cross-device interactions.

Connichiwa : A Framework for Cross-Device Web Applications Schreiner, Mario; Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian E.; Reiterer, Harald While Mark Weiser's vision of ubiquitous computing is getting closer to reality, a fundamental part of it - the interconnection of devices into a "ubiquitous network" - is not achieved yet. Differences in hardware, architecture, and missing standardizations are just some reasons for this. We think that existing research is not versatile enough and too tailored to either single applications, hardware, or location. We contribute Connichiwa -- a versatile framework for creating web applications across multiple devices. We base Connichiwa on four key goals: integration of existing devices, independence of network infrastructure, versatility of application scenario, and usability of its API. Connichiwa runs web applications on off-the-shelf consumer devices. With no external dependencies, such as a server, it enables a great variety of possible scenarios. We tested the technical feasibility of Connichiwa in seven example applications and plan to evaluate the framework and the usability of its API in a one-week Hackathon.

Collaborative Data Analysis with Smart Tangible Devices Fuchs, Johannes; Rädle, Roman; Sacha, Dominik; Fischer, Fabian; Stoffel, Andreas We present a tangible approach for exploring and comparing multi-dimensional data points collaboratively by combining Sifteo Cubes with glyph visualizations. Various interaction techniques like touching, shaking, moving or rotating the displays support the user in the analysis. Context dependent glyph-like visualization techniques make best use of the available screen space and cube arrangements. As a first proof of concept we apply our approach to real multi-dimensional datasets and show with a coherent use case how our techniques can facilitate the exploration and comparison of data points. Finally, further research directions are shown when combining Sifteo Cubes with glyphs and additional context information provided by multi-touch tables.

Employing Blended Interaction to Blend the Qualities of Digital and Physical Books Gebhardt, Christoph; Rädle, Roman; Reiterer, Harald This paper presents Integrative Workplace, a system which blends the qualities of digital and physical sources by augmenting physical books with properties of digital books and vice versa. On the base of Blended Interaction, we designed a system which helps users to interact with the new and unfamiliar functionality of digitally augmented books. In a user study, law students employed Integrative Workplace to work on a legal case. The positive feedback of participants indicated that we managed to design a system which is usable in a professional context. Furthermore, the study revealed evidence that digitally well-established concepts are a part of users’ reality and need to be considered in the design of new user interfaces. The results of this user study encourage us to continue to use Blended Interaction in the design process of novel user interfaces with an unfamiliar functionality.

Bigger is not always better : display size, performance, and task load during peephole map navigation Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Müller, Jens; Reiterer, Harald Dynamic peephole navigation is an increasingly popular technique for navigating large information spaces such as maps. Users can view the map through handheld, spatially aware displays that serve as peepholes and navigate the map by moving these displays in physical space. We conducted a controlled experiment of peephole map navigation with 16 participants to better understand the effect of a peephole's size on users' map navigation behavior, navigation performance, and task load. Simulating different peephole sizes from 4' (smartphone) up to 120' (control condition), we confirmed that larger peepholes significantly improve learning speed, navigation speed, and reduce task load; however, this added benefit diminishes with growing sizes. Our data shows that a relatively small, tablet-sized peephole can serve as a 'sweet spot' between peephole size and both user navigation performance and user task load.

Integrative workplace : studying the effect of digital desks on users' working practices Gebhardt, Christoph; Rädle, Roman; Reiterer, Harald Digitally augmented workspaces have been extensively researched in the last two decades. However, no studies exist which compare the work at digital desks with the work at normal desks to examine how digital desks might change knowledge work practices and its outcomes. This paper reports our work on the design and implementation of Integrative Workplace, a digital desk to support legal work. The prototype allows the user to search and excerpt content from digital and printed documents. In contrast to related works, the system enables parallel interaction with multiple paper documents spread on an entire desk. We identified five key requirements to develop the system and tested it in a pre-study. The study revealed a system usability between ok and good having an average SUS score of 66.94. In future work, we want to conduct a compa-rative study to research the effect of digital desks on users' working practices in the domain of legal work.

HuddleLamp : Spatially-Aware Mobile Displays for Ad-hoc Around-the-Table Collaboration Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Marquardt, Nicolai; Reiterer, Harald; Rogers, Yvonne We present HuddleLamp, a desk lamp with an integrated RGB-D camera that precisely tracks the movements and positions of mobile displays and hands on a table. This enables a new breed of spatially-aware multi-user and multi-device applications for around-the-table collaboration without an interactive tabletop. At any time users can add or remove displays and reconfigure them in space in an ad-hoc manner without the need of installing any software or attaching markers. Additionally, hands are tracked to detect interactions above and between displays, enabling fluent cross-device interactions. The demo consists of the technical implementation of HuddleLamp's hybrid sensing and a Web-based architecture for installation-free ad-hoc collaboration. We demonstrate our implementation by showing a variety of possible interaction techniques.

Encouraging Collaboration in Hybrid Therapy Games for Autistic Children Marwecki, Sebastian; Rädle, Roman; Reiterer, Harald Social competence and communicative skills of children with autism spectrum disorders are supported by behavioral therapy. "Serious games", especially therapeutic games on a hybrid medium, have been proven to serve as a useful tool for behavioral therapy. In this work, we present such a hybrid therapy game: "Invasion of the Wrong Planet". Based on the game, we demonstrate essential design principles for the development of therapeutic games. We focus on specific aspects of behavioral therapy, depending on which desired behavior is encouraged and not enforced. The project provides a basis for discussion on how collaboration using therapeutic games in general can be improved.

The effect of egocentric body movements on users' navigation performance and spatial memory in zoomable user interfaces Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Butscher, Simon; Reiterer, Harald We present two experiments examining the impact of navigation techniques on users’ navigation performance and spatial memory in a zoomable user interface (ZUI). The first experiment with 24 participants compared the effect of egocentric body movements with traditional multi-touch navigation. The results indicate a 47% decrease in path lengths and a 34% decrease in task time in favor of egocentric navigation, but no significant effect on users’ spatial memory immediately after a navigation task. However, an additional second experiment with 8 participants revealed such a significant increase in performance of long-term spatial memory: The results of a recall task administered after a 15-minute distractor task indicate a significant advantage of 27% for egocentric body movements in spatial memory. Furthermore, a questionnaire about the subjects’ workload revealed that the physical demand of the egocentric navigation was significantly higher but there was less mental demand.

Blended shelf : reality-based presentation and exploration of library collections Kleiner, Eike; Rädle, Roman; Reiterer, Harald We present the user interface Blended Shelf, which provides a shelf browsing experience beyond the physical location of the library. Blended Shelf offers a 3D visualization of library collections with the integration of real-world attributes like the size and availability of books. The application reflects the actual arrangement of items in the physical library and enables implicit serendipitous support of the shelf browsing process in the digital world. The interface offers multiple views with different levels of detail regarding the collection as well as various entrance points to it. The user can explore and search the shelves by touch interaction. Tracking the user's position and line of sight ensures the ideal perspective on the interface. Thus, a user can explore collections in a familiar way and benefit from serendipitous browsing discoveries without forfeiting the advantages of the digital domain.

Self-Organizing User Interfaces : Envisioning the Future of Ubicomp UIs Jetter, Hans-Christian; Reiterer, Harald This workshop paper envisions a future of selforganizing UIs for ubiquitous computing. It proposes using self-organization to join many co-located interactive devices into an ad-hoc community of devices that serves users as a single usable and seamless UI. All devices of the community are aware of each other’s presence and contribute their individual input/output capabilities for the common goal of providing users with a seamless, usable, and accessible interface that spans across device boundaries. This is achieved by letting the UI’s behavior emerge from simple rules that react to changes in presence, location, distance, orientation, and movement of neighboring devices and users. By using simple rules of proxemic interactions between devices, deterministic preciseness of classic top-down design and modeling is traded in against less controllable, but more adaptable, robust, and scalable bottom-up designs that automatically react to the dynamics of ad-hoc real-world usage.

Design and Evaluation of Proxemics-Aware Environments to Support Navigation in Large Information Spaces Rädle, Roman In my research, I explore the use of proxemics in Human-Computer Interaction to design explicit and implicit interaction with knowledge work environments for literature review, reading & writing, or discussion. This paper proposes the employment of proxemics for different tasks in knowledge work such as navigation in large information spaces (e.g. zooming and panning). To evaluate different designs, I created a physical environment with interactive walls and multi-touch tables alongside displays of various sizes to form a multi-display environment that enables measuring proxemic relationships (e.g. for manipulating a digital viewport according to a user's location and orientation in physical space). The aim of my dissertation is to design and evaluate different navigation concepts for large information spaces that employ Proxemic Interactions.

TwisterSearch : a distributed user interface for collaborative web search Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Reiterer, Harald Although a Web search is typically regarded as a solitary activity, collaborative search approaches are becoming an increasingly relevant topic for HCI and distributed user interfaces (DUIs). Today’s collaborative search systems lack comprehensive search support that also involves pre- or post-search activities such as preparing for a search or making sense of search results. We believe that post-WIMP DUIs can help to better support social searches and have identified four design goals that are critical for their successful design. In consequence, we pre-sent TwisterSearch, an interactive DUI prototype that meets our four design goals. A formative study conducted with students at a high school shows its general ap-plicability for educational purposes.

eBook meets tabletop : using collaborative visualization for search and serendipity in online book repositories Rädle, Roman; Weiler, Andreas; Huber, Stephan; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Mansmann, Svetlana; Reiterer, Harald; Scholl, Marc H. The ever-growing amount of digitized books and electronically published documents necessitates proper tools to search and explore such large digital information spaces. This paper presents the design of an interactive prototype for collaborative visual information seeking (VIS) in an on-line book repository. The main objectives of the prototype are a visual metaphor to query an on-line book repository and the facilitation of back-and-forth comparison of search results. Furthermore, an integrated cosine similarity search encourages for serendipitous discoveries while browsing through an information space.

TwisterSearch : Supporting Social Search with Tabletop and Mobile Displays Rädle, Roman; Jetter, Hans-Christian; Reiterer, Harald This demo presents TwisterSearch, a system for co-located and collaborative Web search that was designed in accordance with the canonical model of social search by Evans and Chi (2009). In a first phase before search, participants frame the context of the intended search and thereafter gather initial information requirements on a tabletop. These requirements are then refined through discussion and yield the foundation for the search task itself, which is performed in parallel on multiple mobile displays. These private devices are used to search the Web for evidence files and to populate the visual workspace of the tabletop with them. Moreover, the personal device allows both a highly parallel search as well as a tightly-coupled collaborative search, to enable seamless switching between collective and solitary search activities. In our TwisterSearch demo, participants can have a firsthand experience of these different individual phases of social search.

Hidden details of negotiation : the mechanics of reality-based collaboration in information seeking Heilig, Mathias; Huber, Stephan; Gerken, Jens; Demarmels, Mischa; Allmendinger, Katrin; Reiterer, Harald Social activities such as collaborative work and group negotiation can be an essential part of information seeking processes. However, they are not sufficiently supported by today’s information systems as they focus on individual users working with PCs. Reality-based UIs with their increased emphasis on social, tangible, and surface computing have the potential to tackle this problem. By blending characteristics of real-world interaction and social qualities with the advantages of virtual computer systems, they inherently change the possibilities for collaboration, but until now this phenomenon has not been explored sufficiently. Therefore, this paper presents an experimental user study that aims at clarifying the impact such reality-based UIs and its characteristics have on collaborative information seeking processes. Two different UIs have been developed for the purpose of this study. One is based on an interactive multi-touch tabletop in combination with on-screen tangibles, therefore qualifying as a reality-based UI, while the other interface uses three synchronized PCs each controlled by keyboard and mouse. A comparative user study with 75 participants in groups of three was carried out to observe fundamental information seeking tasks for co-located collaboration. The study shows essential differences of emerging group behavior, especially in terms of role perception and seeking strategies depending on the two different UIs.

Blended Library : neue Interaktionsformen für die Bibliothek der Zukunft Heilig, Mathias; Demarmels, Mischa; Huber, Stephan; Reiterer, Harald Im Zuge der voranschreitenden Digitalisierung wurden in der Vergangenheit in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen reale Dienste, wie die einer Bibliothek, auf digitale Dienste übertragen. Jedoch gingen dadurch viele soziale und physische Mehrwerte realer Umgebungen (z. B. persönlicher Kundenkontakt, räumliche Orientierung, greifbare Medienobjekte) verloren. Dieser Beitrag schlägt deshalb einen Paradigmenwechsel, weg von der Entwicklung rein virtueller Welten hin zur Einbettung von Informationstechnologien in die soziale und physische Welt einer Bibliothek vor. Eine Lösungsvariante für diesen Paradigmenwechsel ist das hier vorgestellte Konzept der Blended Library, welches die physischen und sozialen Fähigkeiten von Benutzern in die Interaktion mit der Bibliothek der Zukunft einbringt. Die theoretische Basis hierfür liefert die aus der Kognitionswissenschaft bekannte und zunehmend dominierende Theorie des Embodiment . Diese Theorie offenbart Anforderungen an digitale Systeme, welche eine neue Generation von Benutzerschnittstellen verlangen. Als konzeptionelles Werkzeug für diese neuen Benutzerschnittstellen werden Blends vorgeschlagen. MedioVis 2.0 dient dabei als erste exemplarische Umsetzung einer Blended Library, welche umfassend auf den kreativen Arbeitsablauf eines Wissensarbeiters in der Bibliothek der Zukunft eingeht. Das Konzept wird anhand eines realitätsnahen Szenarios vorgestellt, in dem die Designentscheidungen von MedioVis 2.0 basierend auf Conceptual Blending erklärt werden. Dazu wurde eine begleitende Benutzerstudie mit elf Teilnehmern durchgeführt, die das Potenzial von MedioVis 2.0 untersuchte.
