Information Retrieval / Information Management - Project Development
DESCRIPTION OF WORK RELATED ACTIVITIESAREA OF RESEARCH
I am involved in the analysis of questionnaire results. I document the responses of questions in a histogram (bar graph) that shows the comparison between the different groups of respondents. I generate graphs from this analysis.
I use MS Access, MS Excel, MS Word97, CorelWorperfect 8, CorelQuattroPro8 and Netscape Composer to accomplish the
Another area that I am involved in is an investigation of the frequency of use of in house on-line databases at the Technikon Natal Library. This is my research project and I hope that it would serve as a pilot to another project which I have been contemplating. This project is as described below:
" The sourcing of freely available electronic full-text multi-media archives from storage formats including discs, the Internet and on-line databases that meet criteria as specified by Academic libraries in South Africa".
I am involved in the development of a web site that would serve the research needs of tertiary students from the Technikon Natal Library. This project is really a hobby of mine and I am using it to develop my web design skills.
I also have some free web pages that I use to display incidents and events from my personal life.
