Title: Hypostatizing Data Collections, Especially Bibliographic: Abstractions, Representations, Sensitizations, Adaptations/Personalizations,...
Author(s): Hjerppe, Roland
Subject(s): digital Libraries electronic information resources subject access hypostatization sensualization meta-data
Abstract: Data, originating in abstractions of realities, and denoting selected aspects, at specific times and places, for particular purposes, are for storage and/or transfer made manifest through representations. Some of the representations also serve as sensualizations (presentations) or vice versa. The use of computers is, however, based on a separation of representation from presentation, necessitating and enabling intentional designs of each, separately or conjointly. Every sensualization of a collection of data, be it as a list or as multimodal interaction, involves hypostatizations—i.e., treating or regarding concepts, ideas, etc. as distinct substances or realities. Such sensualizations, hitherto usually static visual presentations, have been based on, and employed, metaphors, with Cartesian analytic geometry as the dominant metaphraser. The sensualization of collections of bibliographic data for access to documents, although facilitated by a range of new tools and techniques, is impeded both by existing legacy metadata structures that grew out of a focus on individual static documents and by the lack of methodologies for the generation and description of collections (documents or subjects) and their dynamics.
