Abstract

The use of facet analysis as an analytical tool for identifying salient access features of moving images was tested in this exploratory project. Twelve participants viewed three films, and created keywords and summaries for each film. These textual descriptions and access features from four moving image repositories were subject to facet analysis. A comparison of the facets elicited by this approach indicates that subject-related content; especially theme, genre and action may be highly salient access points for searchers in moving image repositories.
